    Thanks Dave,

    I finally had the chance to try out your changes. That pesky work thing
    keeps getting in my way. So far so good, from a clean tree, they apply
    fine, and fix all the other issues up to the pte_offset issues in filemap.c.
    If you get to them, shoot me a copy and I'll apply and test for you.

    I see alot of warnings still from flush_dcache_page in
    /include/linux/highmem.h and it looks like a duplicate declaration in
    /asm-sparc64/pgalloc.h, but I have not had the chance to check that out yet.
    I'll try to follow it up if you haven't seen that one yet.

    On a side note, though not arch specific, if you use ramdisk, you'll need to
    apply the patch below that removes second argument to bi_end_io that was
    removed earlier in the series. I have seen a patch floating around,
    hopefully it will get pushed up the chain.

    Thanks again for your help!
    Bruce H.
