Subject[patch 00/17] Text Edit Lock and Immediate Values for 2.6.25-rc8-mm1
Hi Andrew,

Here is the complete patchset required to get basic Immediate Values support
ported to 2.6.25-rc8-mm1. It provides the "simple", non nmi-safe version of
immediate values, which means that immediate values should not be used in code
paths reachable by NMI or MCE handlers. This version also uses
stop_machine_run() for immediate values updates, which is a very heavy lock. In
order to make incremental, easy to review, changes, I think we could start by
this "simple" version as a first step before we switch to the nmi-safe version
later.

It applies at the end of your series files in the following order :

# The following patches are required for any kind of immediate values
# implementation
kprobes-use-mutex-for-insn-pages.patch
kprobes-dont-use-kprobes-mutex-in-arch-code.patch
kprobes-declare-kprobes-mutex-static.patch

x86-enhance-debug-rodata-support-alternatives.patch
fix-text-poke-for-vmalloced-pages.patch

# The following patches provide non nmi-safe immediate values
add-all-cpus-option-to-stop-machine-run.patch

immediate-values-x86-optimization.patch
add-text-poke-and-sync-core-to-powerpc.patch
