Subject2.6.0-test3-mjb1
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.

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/mbligh/2.6.0-test3/patch-2.6.0-test3-mjb1.bz2

additional patches that can be applied if desired:

(these three form the qlogic feral driver)
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.5/2.5.72/2.5.72-mm1/broken-out/linux-isp.patch
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.5/2.5.72/2.5.72-mm1/broken-out/isp-update-1.patch
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.5/2.5.72/2.5.72-mm1/broken-out/isp-remove-pci_detect.patch

Since 2.6.0-test2-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

Notes:
Mostly a merge forwards.

Now in Linus' tree:

- acenic_fix (equiv) Martin J. Bligh
Fix warning in acenic driver
- akpm_bear_pit Andrew Morton
Add a printk for some buffer error I was hitting
- reslabify-pmd-pgd William Lee Irwin
Stick things back in the slab. Or something.

New:

+ 16way_x440 Matt Dobson
Fix problem with booting on 16x x440
+ early_printk_fix Dave Hansen
Fix epk conflict with ppc64
+ gfp_node_strict Dave Hansen
Add a node strict binding as a gfp mask option
