The patchset contains mainly scalability and NUMA stuff, and anything
else that stops things from irritating me. It's meant to be pretty stable,
not so much a testing ground for new stuff.

I'd be very interested in feedback from anyone willing to test on any
platform, however large or small.


Since 2.6.0-test9-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)


Now in Linus' tree:



+ kgdb Various
Stolen from akpm's 2.6.0-test9-mm2

~ schedstat Rick Lindsley
Provide lotsa scheduler statistics (new version)

~ kcg Adam Litke
Acylic call graphs from the kernel (new version)

~ qlogic driver Qlogic
The qlogic driver (new version)

+ emulex driver Emulex
Driver for emulex fiberchannel cards

4/4 split
Hyperthreaded scheduler (Ingo Molnar)
scheduler callers profiling (Anton or Bill Hartner)
Child runs first (akpm)
e1000 fixes
Update the lost timer ticks code
pidmaps_nodepages (Dave Hansen)

page_lock William Lee Irwin
Conditionally convert mapping->page_lock back to an rwlock

irqbal_fast Adam Litke
Balance IRQs more readily

kcg Adam Litke
Acylic call graphs from the kernel. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

numa_mem_equals Dave Hansen
mem= command line parameter NUMA awareness.
