SubjectLinux 2.6.0-test4

There should be a lot of compile fixes here, along with updates for ia64,
and the (painful) move of the 'name' entry out of the "struct device" that
helps avoid unnecessary memory waste.

It's a lot of small stuff all over: nothing really stands out in diffstat,
except the big update of the Zoran video capture driver, and the blkmtd
driver - both updated from their respective development trees (and the ips
scsi driver, but that was due to massive whitespace fixing).

Normal merges with Andrew and arch maintainers (x86-64, ia64, sparc64,
arm), and AGP updates (notably the merging of the ATI IGP). And network
driver updates, ACPI and power management infrastructure.

stand up and un-break them.
o Fix broken x86_64 ioport code
o Update x86 defconfig
o The default ARCH_SI_BAND_T should be "int", since that is what
Linux historically has had. Only x86-64 uses anything else, so make
the special case be _there_.

o The Intel Instruction set manual is wrong on how to test for a
valid SEP bit. The errata has it right: you have to have at least
model 3, stepping 3. Not "model >= 3 or stepping >= 3".
o VT requires INPUT support: make it be automatically included
o Make USB storage select SCSI support automatically, instead

Trond Myklebust:
o Support dentry revalidation under open(".")

fact that a reply might be delivered at any moment by a softirq.

among other things, for the "soft" mount option.

in line with what is done for TCP.

resent since you don't know whether the server is replying to the
first or the second transmission. However we're currently setting
the cutoff point to be the timeout of the first transmission.

ESTALE errors.
