Subject2.5.59-mjb2 (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 2.5.59-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

Added frlock xtime patches, cyclone timer fixes, sched stats.
I have new code for 4K stacks, but haven't applied it yet (next release).

+ schedstat Rick Lindsley
~ sched_tuneables Robert Love
- topo_hack Pat Gaughen
+ sysfs_fix Pat Gaughen
+ cyclone_fixes John Stultz
+ enable_cyclone John Stultz
+ lost_tick John Stultz
+ frlock_xtime Stephen Hemminger et al.
+ frlock_xtime-i386 Stephen Hemminger et al.
+ frlock_xtime-ia64 Stephen Hemminger et al.
+ frlock_xtime-other Stephen Hemminger et al.
+ tcp_fix Alexey
+ numa_pci_fix Dave Hansen
