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).
