    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 2.6.0-test9-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)


    Now in Linus' tree:



    + kgdb Various
    Stolen from akpm's 2.6.0-test9-mm2

    ~ schedstat Rick Lindsley
    Provide lotsa scheduler statistics (new version)

    ~ kcg Adam Litke
    Acylic call graphs from the kernel (new version)

    ~ qlogic driver Qlogic
    The qlogic driver (new version)

    + emulex driver Emulex
    Driver for emulex fiberchannel cards

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