Subject2.5.55-mjb1 (scalability / NUMA patchset)
The patchset contains mainly scalability and NUMA stuff, and anything 
else that stops things from irritating me. It's meant to be pretty stable,
not so much a testing ground for new stuff.

I'd be very interested in feedback from anyone willing to test on any
platform, however large or small.

Since 2.5.54-mjb3

merged with Linus:
- kallsyms Andi Kleen / Daniel Ritz
- apicid_to_node Martin Bligh
- i386_topo Matt Dobson
- do_boot_error James Cleverdon
- more_numaq1 James Cleverdon / Martin Bligh
- cleanup_cpu_apicid Martin J. Bligh
- smpboot_cam Martin J. Bligh
- nuke_clustered_apic Martin J. Bligh
- fix_starfire_warning Martin J. Bligh
