[PATCH 0/6] use BUG_ON correctly, v2

From: Coly Li
Date: Thu Jan 27 2011 - 06:54:18 EST

Most of BUG_ON() implementations use unlikely() internally for better
branch prediction results. The following method to use BUG_ON() with
an explicit unlikely() doesn't make things better and is unwelcome:
Source code should use BUG_ON() just with condition code.

For arch dependent BUG_ON() implementations, they should use unlikely()
internally if they are able to.

This patch set does two things,
1) Remove all explicit unlikey() where kernel code uses BUG_ON().
2) Fix arch dependent BUG_ON() implementations if they don't use
unlikely() internally.

The difference between v2 and v1 patch set are,
1) Remove the fix of mm/nommu.c, because it's in mm-tree already.
2) Add unlikely() inside the BUG_ON() implementations of MIPS and PPC.
