    Ther are nearly 100 mm patches in -mm. I need to do a round of discussion
    with the originators to work out what's suitable for 2.6.15. For "Hugh
    stuff" I'm thinking maybe the first batch
    (mm-hugetlb-truncation-fixes.patch to mm-m68k-kill-stram-swap.patch) and
    not the second batch. But we need to think about it.

    The mspec driver? That work should be based on the mm patches in rc4-mm1,
    I guess. Its impact on core mm is small, so we should be able to get it
    into 2.6.15.
