    Subject[patch] voluntary-preempt-2.6.8.1-P5

    i've uploaded the -P5 patch:

    http://redhat.com/~mingo/voluntary-preempt/voluntary-preempt-2.6.8.1-P5

    Changes since -P4:

    - increase PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM to avoid percpu overflow on SMP.
    (Mark H Johnson)

    - reduce ZAP_BLOCK_SIZE to 16 when vp != 0. This pushes the exit
    latency down to below 100 usecs on Lee Revell's box.

    - added a preempt_count field to /proc/latency_trace. This makes it
    easier to spot IRQ contexts and generally it gives a nice overview of
    how the preemption depth changes. It should also help us debug
    those 900usec weirdnesses related to cpu_idle. (if they still occur)

    - made the tcp packet-queue collapsing dependent on VOLUNTARY_PREEMPT.

    - fixed 10-20 msec latencies triggered by 'netstat', which occur when
    there are lots of sockets on a box.

    - rediffed against 2.6.8.1 for the patch to apply without fuzz
