    Subject[patch 00/17] Text Edit Lock and Immediate Values for 2.6.25-rc8-mm1
    Hi Andrew,

    Here is the complete patchset required to get basic Immediate Values support
    ported to 2.6.25-rc8-mm1. It provides the "simple", non nmi-safe version of
    immediate values, which means that immediate values should not be used in code
    paths reachable by NMI or MCE handlers. This version also uses
    stop_machine_run() for immediate values updates, which is a very heavy lock. In
    order to make incremental, easy to review, changes, I think we could start by
    this "simple" version as a first step before we switch to the nmi-safe version
    later.

    It applies at the end of your series files in the following order :

    # The following patches are required for any kind of immediate values
    # implementation
    kprobes-use-mutex-for-insn-pages.patch
    kprobes-dont-use-kprobes-mutex-in-arch-code.patch
    kprobes-declare-kprobes-mutex-static.patch

    x86-enhance-debug-rodata-support-alternatives.patch
    fix-text-poke-for-vmalloced-pages.patch
    x86-enhance-debug-rodata-support-for-hotplug-and-kprobes.patch

    text-edit-lock-architecture-independent-code.patch
    text-edit-lock-kprobes-architecture-independent-support.patch

    # The following patches provide non nmi-safe immediate values
    add-all-cpus-option-to-stop-machine-run.patch
    immediate-values-architecture-independent-code.patch
    implement-immediate-update-via-stop-machine-run.patch
