Ok, I almost called this the final test12, but I wanted to get some more
feedback on the keyboard controller stuff and PCI irq routing.

The biggest part of this is the budding parisc stuff, but it's unlikely
that we'll see full parisc support in 2.4.0 - the remaining pieces that
actually touch generic code aren't going to be as brainless to integrate.

Of this, the "exec_usermodehelper()" changes should fix a few problems for
people who rely heavily on automatic module loading, and the PCI irq
routing changes should hopefully fix a number of laptops.

Concering the PCI irq routing fixes in particular, I'd ask people with
laptops to start testing their kernels with PnP OS set to "yes" in the
BIOS setup. We shoul dbe at a stage where it should basically work all the
time, and it would be interesting to hear about cases that we don't handle

(Anybody who has had problems with USB interrupts seemingly not being
delivered and similar is also encouraged to test this new kernel).

The APIC setup order should get older SMP machines working again (which
broke when we fixed some newer machines - let's hope that this time we fix
one machine without breaking another one).


- pre6:
- Alan Cox: synch. PA-RISC arch and bitops cleanups
- Maciej Rozycki: even more proper apic setup order.
- Andrew Morton: exec_usermodehelper fixes
- Adam Richter, Kai Germaschewski, me: PCI irq routing.
- revert A20 code changes. We really need to use the keyboard
controller if one exists. But decrease timeouts.
- Johannes Erdfelt: USB updates
- Ralf Baechle: MIPS memmove() fix.

- pre5:
- Jaroslav Kysela: ymfpci driver
- me: get rid of bogus MS_INVALIDATE semantics
- me: final part of the PageDirty() saga
- Rusty Russell: 4-way SMP iptables fix
- Al Viro: oops - bad ext2 inode dirty block bug

- pre4:
- Andries Brouwer: final isofs pieces.
- Kai Germaschewski: ISDN
- play CD audio correctly, don't stop after 12 minutes.
- Anton Altaparmakov: disable NTFS mmap for now, as it doesn't work.
- Stephen Tweedie: fix inode dirty block handling
- Bill Hartner: reschedule_idle - prefer right cpu
- Johannes Erdfelt: USB updates
- Alan Cox: synchronize
- Richard Henderson: alpha updates and optimizations
- Geert Uytterhoeven: fbdev could be fooled into crashing fix
- Trond Myklebust: NFS filehandles in inode rather than dentry

- pre3:
- me: more PageDirty / swapcache handling
- Neil Brown: raid and md init fixes
- David Brownell: pci hotplug sanitization.
- Kanoj Sarcar: mips64 update
- Kai Germaschewski: ISDN sync
- Andreas Bombe: ieee1394 cleanups and fixes
- Johannes Erdfelt: USB update
- David Miller: Sparc and net update
- Trond Myklebust: RPC layer SMP fixes
- Thomas Sailer: mixed sound driver fixes
- Tigran Aivazian: use atomic_dec_and_lock() for free_uid()

- pre2:
- Peter Anvin: more P4 configuration parsing
- Stephen Tweedie: O_SYNC patches. Make O_SYNC/fsync/fdatasync
do the right thing.
- Keith Owens: make mdule loading use the right struct module size
- Boszormenyi Zoltan: get MTRR's right for the >32-bit case
- Alan Cox: various random documentation etc
- Dario Ballabio: EATA and u14-34f update
- Ivan Kokshaysky: unbreak alpha ruffian
- Richard Henderson: PCI bridge initialization on alpha
- Zach Brown: correct locking in Maestro driver
- Geert Uytterhoeven: more m68k updates
- Andrey Savochkin: eepro100 update
- Dag Brattli: irda update
- Johannes Erdfelt: USB update

- pre1: (for ISDN synchronization _ONLY_! Not complete!)
- Byron Stanoszek: correct decimal precision for CPU MHz in
- Ollie Lho: SiS pirq routing.
- Andries Brouwer: isofs cleanups
- Matt Kraai: /proc read() on directories should return EISDIR, not EINVAL
- me: be stricter about what we accept as a PCI bridge setup.
- me: always set PCI interrupts to be level-triggered when we enable them.
- me: updated PageDirty and swap cache handling
- Peter Anvin: update A20 code to work without keyboard controller
- Kai Germaschewski: ISDN updates
- Russell King: ARM updates
- Geert Uytterhoeven: m68k updates
