    There are still a few things hanging around.

    I have these queued:


    which I'll get through to Linus later today. Plus:

    - x86_64-irq-simplfy-__assign_irq_vector.patch and
    x86_64-irq-handle-irqs-pending-in-irr-during-irq-migration.patch which
    are big and scary. Am awaiting feedback from Andi and Eric on what to do
    with these.

    - A fix from Trond for
    Am awaiting acks to merge that.

    - sky2-flow-control-off.patch from shemminger which I assume Linus will
    be merging anyway.

    - v9fs_vfs_mkdir-fix-a-double-free.patch which I guess I'll merge unless
    Eric suddenly nacks it.

    - I have r8169-fix-a-race-between-pci-probe-and-dev_open.patch floating
    about, but I forget its status.

    - I have efi-x86-pass-firmware-call-parameters-on-the-stack.patch, but
    I'm not sure it's right and unless something really rapid happens, we'll
    ship with that bug unfixed.

    - enable-mouse-button-23-emulation-for-x86-macs.patch looks simple
    enough, but I'm waiting for Ben to wake up.

    - x86-fix-vdso-mapping-for-aout-executables.patch probably works OK, but
    Andi points out that it'd be better to implement this with
    attribute-weak. So I guess 2.6.20 will ship with non-functional a.out on
    i386, like 2.6.29.
