Subject2.5.54-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 2.5.54-mjb1 (mainly finished moving NUMA-Q into subarch).

- kgdb
+ kgdb (new version) Andrew Morton / Various People
~ i386_caching_topo (rejigged)
+ cleanup_cpu_apicid Martin Bligh
+ smpboot_cam Martin Bligh
+ nuke_clustered_apic Martin Bligh
~ interrupt_stacks (fixed a warning)
~ stack_usage_check (fixed a warning)
+ do_boot_error (this was in -mjb1, but I forgot it in the notes)

Also reordered a bunch of stuff.

Speed up page init on boot (Bill Irwin)
Notsc automatic enablement
