    Subject2.5.64-mjb1 (scalability / NUMA patchset)
    The patchset contains mainly 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.


    Since 2.5.63-mjb2 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)


    Merged with Linus:

    - local_pgdat William Lee Irwin
