This release is mostly meant for further eyes to check for merge errors. It
boots but thats about all I'd guarantee. I plan to do just the fixups for
2.4.4 bugs and then back out some of the existing changes that don't help
much - notably some of the VM tuning isnt gaining us anything but multiple
bad implementations.
