Well, it looks like my new version of git properly handles the
--in-reply-to switch now, so this patch set shouldn't be oddly threaded
like the last version.

This patch set is a dependency of the generic red-black tree patch set, which
I have now split up into three smaller sets and is based off of linux-next.

The major aim of this patch set is to cleanup compiler-gcc*.h and improve
the manageability of of compiler features at various versions (when they
are broken, etc.), add some needed features to bug.h and clean that up as

o Introduce GCC_VERSION - (e.g., gcc 4.7.1 becomes 40701).
o Reorder all features based upon the version introduced (readability).
o Change all version checks to use GCC_VERSION.
o Remove redundant __linktime_error macro.
o Introduce compiletime_assert() macro.

o Improve BUILD_BUG_ON(expr) - now generates compile-time error post-gcc-4.4
o Remove duplicate error messages in some cases.
o Fix double-evaluation problem in BUILD_BUG_ON.
o Fix bad macro definitions when using __CHECKER__.
o Introduce BUILD_BUG_ON_MSG and clean up the implementations of the
BUILD_BUG* macros.
