Subject2.5.59-mm8

http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/2.5/2.5.59/2.5.59-mm8/

. Various tweaks and fixes, and some hugetlbpage work.

. There is an updated anticipatory scheduler patch from Nick over in
experimental/ which addresses the large-read-starves-everything problem.

. The reworked ia32 balancing patch from Nitin Kamble is stable, and is
consistently showing benefit for heavy networking loads on large SMP
machines. Even though everyone seems to agree that a userspace solution to
this is smarter, that's no reason to hold back on improving the
kernel-based solution so I shall be submitting that patch.

. Ingo's latest scheduler changes are here. I held off on that because it
appeared that there was some interaction with the I/O scheduler. Whatever
that was has gone away without any CPU scheduler changes, so...

. frlocks have been renamed to seqlocks, and that code is now converging
onto something stable.
