Subject2.5.59-mm2

http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/2.5/2.5.59/2.5.59-mm2/

- Added Andi's lockless current_kernel_time() patch again. It'll break
non-ia32 builds. But it appears that we should push ahead and get this
implemented across the other architectures.

- Updated oprofile patches from John.

- Adam's devfs rework is back in. We only had two testers last time, (out
of maybe 150 downloads) which is fairly disappointing.

So if you use devfs, _please_ test this change and send either success or
failure reports (not to me though).

Adam said:

If you want devfsd functionality (well, at least the "REGISTER" and
"LOOKUP" events), you can get my user level program devfs_helper, which is
a reduced functionality replacement program for devfsd from the following
URL.

ftp://ftp.yggdrasil.com/pub/dist/device_control/devfs/devfs_helper-0.2.tar.gz
