Ok, just finished looking over the patches and I am generally
very happy about their quality, it usually takes much longer
for a submission of this size to get into a mergeable shape.

The only thing that I think needs to be fixed before a
2.6.31 release is my comment about unistd.h still containing
the __ARCH_WANT_SYSCALL_* #defines. I consider that my fault
because I did not make it clear enough what those are meant
for in asm-generic/unistd.h.

One more general thought: I noticed that you split the header
files by alphabetical ordering. While there is no good way to
split a set of interdependent files, a logical grouping
(e.g. ABI, memory management, device, cpu) would be nice.

Everything else I found are only polite suggestions of what
can still be improved, not issues that I think need to
be addressed immediately. I especially love how the work
that Remis and I put into the generic header files starts
paying off, because it makes reviewing an architecture so
much simpler.

Please add my 'Reviewed-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>'
to your patches.
