Looks pretty sane from a quick scan.

- request_irq() can use GFP_KERNEL?

- show_interrupts() should use for_each_online_cpu()

<wow, kprobes support>

- do you really need __udivdi3() and friends? We struggle hard to avoid
the necessity on x86 and you should be able to leverage that advantage.

- What are these for?



- Was there a ./MAINTAINERS patch? I didn't see one.

- Who stands behind this port? How do we know this isn't a patch-n-run
exercise? How do we know that the code won't rot?

- How does one build a something->avr32 cross-toolchain?
