o Fix up some timeouts to use the proper types

is actually showing interactive behaviour (sleeping) and the
process that wakes up the interative process get a bonus.
o Fix "con_init()" function type and stale (and incorrect)
o Fix a very theoretical race between the new RCU lookup and
concurrent renames in another directory.
o Avoid warning due to missing return value
o Ignore initramfs cpio file
o Fix up i387 task switching bug introduced by Andi Kleen's patch to
speed it up - use the proper bitmask for clearing "used-fpu" state.
o Fix nanosleep() problem noticed by Todd Mokros <>
o Cache the MSR_IA32_SYSENTER_CS value in the per-CPU TSS (using the
otherwise unused cpl1 entry for SS), so that we can avoid
re-loading it on task switches if it doesn't change.
o Move "used FPU status" into new non-atomic thread_info->status
o Remove <asm-i386/xor.h>'s own home-made FPU begin/end macros, use
the real ones instead.
o Use a fixed per-cpu SYSENTER_MSR_ESP value by having the sysenter
entry routine load the real ESP0 off that per-cpu stack. Make this
even faster by putting the sysenter stack in the per-CPU TSS, so
that we can use the tss->esp0 value directly (which we have to
update on task switches anyway).
o Use cond_sched() instead of manual expansion of it
o Error out for the case of a gcc-2.96 compiler with
CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER set. A few versions of gcc-2.96 generate
seriously incorrect code.
