It's a strange time to be sending this.

We're in the middle of a massive dump from linux-next into mainline and
soon we'll be doing a more modest dump of -mm into mainline and I'm
tiptoeing around getting all anxious when people try to sneak
wasnt-in-linux-next stuff into mainline thus wrecking all my junk.

I'm largely in ignore-new-stuff mode as I'm trying to stabilise
the existing stuff for 2.6.27-rc1 and hopefully the subsystem
maintainers are in the same mode.

So, hum. It's not a good time for anyone to be merging new
probably-2.6.28 material like this!

So for now, please let's just review the code and if it does get decent
review and if there are no unresolveable objections, please ask Stephen
to include this tree in linux-next.

That being said, the impact on existing code is fairly modest and we
could perhaps slip it into 2.6.27-rc1. I haven't looked at it yet.

Still. Strange timing!
