    Subject[PATCH 0/11] ppc64: Introduce Cell/BPA platform, v3
    Date
    This series of patches add support for a fifth platform type in the
    ppc64 architecture tree. The Broadband Processor Architecture (BPA)
    is what machines using the Cell processor should be following
    and currently only prototype hardware exists for it.

    Most of the functionality is the same as in the previous version.
    The main updates are:

    - Fixes for the comments I got
    - Added more patches for moving rtas related stuff around from pSeries,
    so we can use it from BPA as well
    - Smaller bug fixes
    - Lots of changes on the SPU file system (see the patch comments)

    One thing that has happened is that the Cell Processor Based Blade
    has now been shown on E3 and the Power.org press summit and will
    also be on Linuxtag, so you can now see what kind of hardware this
    runs on.

    This series does not include the libspu files, as we are doing some changes
    to the library right now. I'm also not including the driver for our network
    driver yet. It's working well, but I'm waiting for a cleanup patch and
    plan to submit it after Linuxtag.

    Please forward these patches for inclusion in 2.6.13 if you are happy
    with them. The spufs code is still not ready for inclusion, but it could
    start a life in -mm to get a broader review at this point.
