Subject2.6.0-test9-mm2

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test9/2.6.0-test9-mm2/


- Various random fixes. Maybe about half of these are 2.6.0-worthy.

- Some improvements to the anticipatory IO scheduler and more readahead
tweaks should help some of those database benchmarks.

The anticipatory scheduler is still a bit behind the deadline scheduler
in these random seeky loads - it most likely always will be.

- "A new driver for the ethernet interface of the NVIDIA nForce chipset,
licensed under GPL."

Testing of this would be appreciated. Send any reports to linux-kernel
or netdev@oss.sgi.com and Manfred will scoop them up, thanks.


- I shall be offline for a couple of days.
