Quite frankly, at this time a backout means that the thing doesn't go in

It came in before the feature freeze, but I decided that instead of having
a totally hectic time I woul dmerge stuff that I got before the freeze at
my own leisure, but backing it out now would be basically saying it's not
going into 2.6.x. And I think it's worth it.

(There are some other patches I'm still thinking about, notably kprobes
and posix timers, but other than that my plate is fairly empty froma
feature standpoint. And the kexec stuff I want others to test, at least
now it's palatable to me).

People who find the current module situation difficult can just compile in
the stuff they need for now.
