    SubjectRe: various cpu patches [was: (resend) take3: Updated CPU Hotplug patches]
    > I don't see any essential interaction between these patches.

    Essentially, yes. The interactions were:

    Ashok's Hotplug added an essential arch-specific ifdef to a
    arch-specific cpumask file that my cleanup removes - so I had
    to work with Ashok to remove that arch dependency.

    Reiser's bssprot broke ia64, so I couldn't test with that patch.

    Matthew has recoded his nodemask patch to presume my cpumask cleanup.

    Andi's numa patch is so far as we know independent, but close enough
    to all this other activity to be at risk for something.

    The interactions were enough that I probably couldn't expect Andrew to
    wade through them to adapt my cleanup. Rather I pretty much have to
    deliver my cleanup ready to go, with whatever Andrew thinks is his
    current *-mm series.

    I'll be doing well just to get Andrew to look at it, despite what I take
    to be endorsements from Matthew, Rusty and Joe Korty, and conditional
    acceptance from yourself. Andrew would probably drop it in a heartbeat
    if it collided non-trivially.

    So merge work - yes. But merge work that mostly I need to do, which
    makes me very sensitive to the order in which things happen.

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
