The patchset contains mainly performance, 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 2.6.0-test9-mjb3 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

Notes: Mostly a merge forwards.

Now in Linus' tree:


- imcplicit_large_page Adam Litke
Breaks PPC64 build. New patch soon.


+ scsi_fix Mike Anderson
Fix kobject oops.

+ pci_topology Matt Dobson
Expose PCI NUMA topology to userspace

4/4 split
Hyperthreaded scheduler (Ingo Molnar)
scheduler callers profiling (Anton or Bill Hartner)
Child runs first (akpm)
e1000 fixes
pidmaps_nodepages (Dave Hansen)
