IUCV = Inter-User-Communication-Vehicle. Nice name, isn't it?

It is a z/VM hypervisor interface that allows the different guests to
communicate between each other. net/iucv.c is the base code,
net/af_iucv.c implements the socket interface.

The patch you provided for iucv has a few bugs which are corrected with
the patch below (please merge with patch #25). With it new cpu alloc
code works fine on s390. We likely want to switch to a virtual
configuration as well. For now we can live with the static
configuration.
