Subject[GIT PULL] futex fixes
Linus,

Please pull the latest futex fixes git tree from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/linux-2.6-tip.git core-fixes-for-linus

Thanks,

Ingo

------------------>
Darren Hart (6):
futex: Correct futex_wait_requeue_pi() commentary
futex: Correct queue_me and unqueue_me commentary
futex: Make function kernel-doc commentary consistent
futex: Correct futex_q woken state commentary
futex: Fix wakeup race by setting TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE before queue_me()
futex: Add memory barrier commentary to futex_wait_queue_me()
