Subject[PATCH 0/8] BKL removal, assorted patches
Date
These patches are necessary for the removal of the
big kernel lock but don't fit in any other series.

The most important one is the addition of the
CONFIG_BKL Kconfig symbol, which can be used
to mark device drivers that are still using the
BKL so we can build a kernel that does not provide
or need it.

I'd like to add this series to linux-next and
submit it for linux-2.6.36 inclusion, but
would even more welcome the individual maintainers
to pick up the respective patches and put them
in their next trees.
