There are still a few things hanging around.

I have these queued:


which I'll get through to Linus later today. Plus:

- x86_64-irq-simplfy-__assign_irq_vector.patch and
x86_64-irq-handle-irqs-pending-in-irr-during-irq-migration.patch which
are big and scary. Am awaiting feedback from Andi and Eric on what to do
with these.

- A fix from Trond for
Am awaiting acks to merge that.

- sky2-flow-control-off.patch from shemminger which I assume Linus will
be merging anyway.

- v9fs_vfs_mkdir-fix-a-double-free.patch which I guess I'll merge unless
Eric suddenly nacks it.

- I have r8169-fix-a-race-between-pci-probe-and-dev_open.patch floating
about, but I forget its status.

- I have efi-x86-pass-firmware-call-parameters-on-the-stack.patch, but
I'm not sure it's right and unless something really rapid happens, we'll
ship with that bug unfixed.

- enable-mouse-button-23-emulation-for-x86-macs.patch looks simple
enough, but I'm waiting for Ben to wake up.

- x86-fix-vdso-mapping-for-aout-executables.patch probably works OK, but
Andi points out that it'd be better to implement this with
attribute-weak. So I guess 2.6.20 will ship with non-functional a.out on
i386, like 2.6.29.
