    Subject[PATCH 0/7] Start using sysctl paths in the core kernel code
    The patches from Eric, that add support for so called ctl_paths
    has recently being accepted, so I hope we can start using this
    very useful feature.

    To begin with, I switched the core kernel code to use the paths.
    The rest code to be patched (after this set) will be:
    * arch-specifi,
    * some filesystems,
    * networking.

    After this set the total vmlinux size decrease is ~500 bytes:

    add/remove: 5/6 grow/shrink: 5/1 up/down: 121/-616 (-495)
    function old new delta
    mq_sysctl_path - 24 +24
    fs_quota_path - 24 +24
    uts_root_path - 16 +16
    sd_ctl_path - 16 +16
    ipc_root_path - 16 +16
    utsname_sysctl_init 13 18 +5
    register_sched_domain_sysctl 762 767 +5
    ipc_sysctl_init 13 18 +5
    init_mqueue_fs 165 170 +5
    dquot_init 191 196 +5
    uts_root_table 88 - -88
    sys_table 88 - -88
    sd_ctl_root 88 - -88
    mq_sysctl_root 88 - -88
    mq_sysctl_dir 88 - -88
    ipc_root_table 88 - -88
    fs_table 792 704 -88

    The set is prepared to fit the 2.6.24-rc3-mm2 kernel with Eric's
    patches concerning sysctls.
