    Commit cd7eab44e994 ("genirq: Add IRQ affinity notifiers") was a
    prerequisite for some changes in networking. Thomas Gleixner applied it
    on a branch of its own so that David Miller could pull just that commit
    into net-next-2.6. Of course, this means net-next-2.6 doesn't have the
    later fix (and won't for a while).

    Not speaking for my employer; that's the marketing department's job.
    They asked us to note that Solarflare product names are trademarked.
