Subject2.5.59-mm1

http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/2.5/2.5.59/2.5.59-mm1/

I've stripped these patches down to just those things which seriously should
go into Linus's tree.

I'm mainly interested in gathering bugfixes across the rest of this month,
but if people have more substantial things which are clearly 2.6 material and
need some testing then OK.



Changes since 2.5.58-mm1:


-deadline-np.patch
-saner-readahead.patch
-ext3-leak-fix.patch
-hugetlbfs-read-write.patch
-ext3-ino_t-cleanup.patch

Merged

-rcf.patch

run-child-first didn't seem to help anything, and an alarming number of
cleanups and fixes were needed to get it working right. Later.

-cputimes_stat.patch

Not to Linus's taste.

-smaller-head-arrays.patch

This was just for trolling Manfred.

+deadline-np-42.patch
+deadline-np-43.patch

I/O scheduler changes from Nick.

-ptrace-flush.patch

Wasn't a serious patch anyway

-rcu-stats.patch

Not sure we need this.

+ext3-scheduling-storm.patch

Fix the bug wherein ext3 sometimes shows blips of 100k context
switches/sec.

-ext3-fsync-speedup.patch

Haven't tested this yet.

-lockless-current_kernel_time.patch

Is ia32-only.

-honour-vm_reserved.patch

Unnecessary

+mixer-bounds-check.patch

sound/oss/sb_mixer.c fixlets

+kirq.patch

Nitin Kamble's rework of the ia32 SMP interrupt distribution logic.

+ext3-truncate-ordered-pages.patch

Free truncated pages earlier from ext3 - should fix the strange "cannot
fork" thing which Con reports.

+read_cache_pages-cleanup.patch
+remove-GFP_HIGHIO.patch

Cleanups.

-wli-02_do_sak.patch
-wli-03_proc_super.patch
-wli-06_uml_get_task.patch
-wli-07_numaq_mem_map.patch
-wli-08_numaq_pgdat.patch
-wli-09_has_stopped_jobs.patch
-wli-10_inode_wait.patch
-wli-13_rmap_nrpte.patch

Not convinced about these.

-dcache_rcu-2.patch
-dcache_rcu-3.patch

Looks like nothing is happening here until Mr Viro returns.

-page-walk-api.patch
-page-walk-api-2.5.53-mm2-update.patch
-page-walk-scsi.patch
-page-walk-scsi-2.5.53-mm2.patch

This is 2.7 material.

+stack-overflow-fix.patch

Fix thinko in the ia32 stack overflow checker.

+Richard_Henderson_for_President.patch

It's all right for him - he lives in Australia.

+parenthesise-pgd_index.patch
+macro-double-eval-fix.patch
+mmzone-parens.patch
+blkdev-fixes.patch

Header file safety.
