SubjectLinux 2.5.36

Big patch, most of it due to the XFS merge.

The rest is pretty normal - more syncs with Andrew, some console code
reorg by James, NTFS fixes for highmem, and IDE, USB and firewire updates.


Summary of changes from v2.5.35 to v2.5.36

Andrew Morton <>:
o low-latency zap_page_range
o resurrect /proc/meminfo:Buffers
o hugetlb pages
o fix reverse map accounting leak
o add /proc/meminfo:Mapped
o ext3 ceanup: use EXT3_SB
o hold the page ref across ->readpage
o fix a bogus OOM condition for __GFP_NOFS allocations
o clean up the TLB takedown code, remove debug
o add dump_stack(): cross-arch backtrace
o various small cleanups

o XFS: "AutoVersion"

Peter Anvin <>:

James Simmons <>:
o These files missed the handle_sysrq change
o Removed selection.h header. It is not needed and in the future
selections will be a pure userland solution. Use set_current_state
instead in tty_ioctl.c
o Renames console.c and vt.c. The idea is to break these massive
files into smaller ones. The main goal is to move all the high end
tterminal emulation into one file. This way we can have a light
weight printk without the extra weight. nice for embedded systems

rb_node' and 'struct rb_root' Remove duplicate implementation of
rb_next() in net/sched/sch_htb.c while we're at it.
