    pulled this into tip/x86/prototypes, thanks Jaswinder.

    Btw., when sending pull requests it's best to use git-request-pull. I.e.
    something like:

    git-request-pull tip/master git://

    would have generated the proper output.

    The changes still need some fixing though. For example, this change:

    > 2. [PATCH] x86: process_32.c declare cpu_number before they get used

    why is cpu_number moved over from smp.h to current.h? I think it's more
    logical in smp.h. If it's missing somewhere then add an #include
    <asm/smp.h> to that file?

    also, this change:

    +++ b/include/linux/timer.h
    @@ -6,6 +6,10 @@
    #include <linux/stddef.h>
    #include <linux/debugobjects.h>

    +#ifdef CONFIG_X86
    +#include <asm/timer.h>
    +#endif /* CONFIG_X86 */

    is not really acceptable in a generic header, nor is:

    --- a/include/linux/syscalls.h
    +++ b/include/linux/syscalls.h
    @@ -65,6 +67,10 @@ struct getcpu_cache;

    #include <linux/key.h>

    +#ifdef CONFIG_X86
    +#include <asm/syscalls.h>
    +#endif /* CONFIG_X86 */

    i'd suggest we just do asm-x86/syscall.h and asm-x86/timer.h changes and
    add #include <asm/syscall.h> and #include <asm/timer.h> to the affected
    x86 .c files. Once every architecture has it, linux/syscall.h can be
    extended with an unconditional asm/syscall.h include.

    Or, like Matthew has suggested, a 'complete' collection of all syscalls
    should be assembled into linux/syscall.h. In that case it has extra
    documentation value if there's an #ifdef CONFIG_X86 for certain
    syscalls. (say the LDT or VM86 syscalls make only sense on x86

    another thing:
    --- a/include/asm-x86/signal.h
    +++ b/include/asm-x86/signal.h
    +void do_notify_resume(struct pt_regs *, void *, __u32);

    please add "extern" to each such prototype declaration. (the same is
    true for a handful of other prototypes you've added - please re-review
    and fix them)

    +#ifdef CONFIG_X86_32
    extern int timer_ack;
    -extern int no_timer_check;
    extern int recalibrate_cpu_khz(void);
    +#endif /* CONFIG_X86_32 */
    +extern int no_timer_check;
    hm, why was this needed?
