SubjectLinux 2.6.0-test7 - stability freeze

The -test7 kernel is out there now - I'm not reaching, but it's
on the other BK sites, and the tar-ball and patches are uploading to right now.

The biggest part of the test7 patches are:
- s390 update
- DVB update
- NFS (v4 in particular) update
- cpufreq updates
- ACPI update

A lot of the rest are basically a lot of small onelines, along with fairly
minor updates (networking fixes for shared skb's for remaining cases,
janitorials, cleanups etc).

The more interesting thing is that I and Andrew are trying to calm down
development, and I do _not_ want to see patches that don't fix a real and
clear bug. In other words, the "cleanup and janitorial" stuff is on hold,
and -test8 and then -test9 should be for _stability_ fixes only.

In other words, this should calm things down so that by the end of October
we can look at the state of 2.6.0 without having a lot of noise from "not
strictly necessary" stuff.

o [IRDA]: litelink dongle module conversion
o [IRDA]: ma600 dongle module conversion
o [IRDA]: mcp2120 dongle module conversion
o [IRDA]: old_belkin dongle module conversion
o [IRDA]: Fix BUG() in irlmp seq file code
o [IRDA]: Fix spinlock badness in last dongle changes
o [NET]: Convert dvb-net to use alloc_netdev()
o monotonic seqlock for cyclone timer
o monotonic seqlock for HPET timer

Stephen Lord:
o [XFS] Be consistent about when we dump error messages. Make sure
the hex component of an error message only comes out when the
message does.
o [XFS] use dev_t less in xfs
o [XFS] Switch pagebuf hashing to be based on the block_device
address rather than the dev_t. Should give better distribution. Mod
from Al Viro.
o Remove dead file xfs_attr_fetch.c
o [XFS] Remove dead flags
o [XFS] remove unused va_fsid field
o [XFS] remove dead function xfs_trans_iput
o [XFS] Fix a broken interaction between a buffered read into an
unwritten extent and a direct write
o [XFS] Fix build
o [XFS] fix merge error in pagebuf flush logic, bogus spinlock obtain
was left in the code.
o [XFS] fix the other half of the merge snafu
o [XFS] fix log recovery report string formatting
o [XFS] Re-work pagebuf & xfs stats to use per-cpu variables - big
globals that are written all the time
o [XFS] Close some holes in the metadata flush logic used during
unmount, make sure we have no pending I/O completion calls for
metadata, and that we only keep hold of metadata buffers for I/O
completion if we want to. Still not perfect, but better than it
o [XFS] When calculating the number of pages to probe for an
unwritten extent, use the size of the extent, not the page count of
the pagebuf which is initialized to zero.
o [XFS] Either handle preemption with get/put or not, but don't get
without a put! Fix code for preemptable kernels.
o [XFS] Code cleanup
o [XFS] Code cleanup
o [XFS] small cleanup

Steven Cole:
o USB: remove reference to modules.txt in drivers/usb/input/Kconfig

Tiago Sousa:
o [NETFILTER]: Add support for mIRC's 'server lookup' DCC address
detection to ip_conntrack_irc.c

Tom Rini:
o [SERIAL] Fix for NS16550A on a Super I/O on PPC
o [SERIAL] Make the Startech UART detection 'more correct'
o PPC32: Move a few more IBM-40x specific SPRs to the right file

Tommy Christensen:
o [VLAN]: Do not modify the data of shared SKBs

Trond Myklebust:
o UDP round trip timer fix. Modify Karn's algorithm so that we
inherit timeouts from previous requests.
o Make the client act correctly if the RPC server's asserts that it
does not support a given program, version or procedure call.
o Fix up hangs with the upcall mechanism for RPCSEC_GSS and the NFSv4
o Increase the NFS readahead so that we at least fill the RPC slot
o Fix an Oops in the NFSv4 asynchronous unlink code. The v4 getattr
"bitmap" was allocated on the stack.
o Clean up the nfs_fhget() function. Have the called pass the
superblock as a parameter instead of passing it in the form
o Rename the struct "nfs4_shareowner". The name was confusing and
didn't really relate to any of the RFCs.
o The NFSv4 state model assumes that the client machine identifies
itself to the server once and once only.
o Simplify the synchronous NFS read call interface by passing a
pointer to a filled nfs_read_data structure (the same struct used
by the asynchronous function calls)
o Simplify NFS synchronous write call interface. Pass a pointer to a
filled nfs_write_data struct like we do for asynchronous function
o NFSv4 state model update
o Clean up the nfs4_stateid and nfs4_verifier typedefs

Ulrich Drepper:
o [NET]: Use task->tgid instead of task->pid in SCM credentials code

Urban Widmark:
o [SMBFS]: Create OLD_TO_NEW_foo macros in highuid.h and use them
instead of direct references to low2highfoo.

Vinay K. Nallamothu:
o [X25]: Use mod_timer(), add missing sock locking to x25_accept()

Wensong Zhang:
o [IPVS] fix the unlocking bug in the ip_vs_conn_seq_stop

Wim Van Sebroeck:
o USB: problem with uhci-hcd in versions 2.6.0-test5 and 2.6.0-test6
