Subject2.6.0-mjb1
The patchset contains mainly performance, scalability and NUMA stuff, 
and anything else that stops things from irritating me. It's meant to be
pretty stable, not so much a testing ground for new stuff.

I'd be very interested in feedback from anyone willing to test on any
platform, however large or small.
