Subject[PATCH 0/7] V3 of the async function call patches
version 3 of the async function call patches

* Dropped the ACPI part; it broke i surprising ways; needs a rethink
(working with Len and co on that)
* Included asynchronous delete()


There is still no integration with the out of tree slow-work patch;
the slow-work patch does really weird things with refcounts that make it
really specific to cachefs and, frankly, I think it's a rather
weird design.

The overlap is maybe 200 lines of code at most, of which 100+ would
need to be added just to deal with the various weirdnesses. I really
don't think this is a good idea or a fair requirement on the async
function call patch series.

The following changes since commit 8903709b054a8dafe4e8c6d9a6444034d7aba36f:
Harvey Harrison (1):
xtensa: introduce swab.h

are available in the git repository at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arjan/linux-2.6-async.git master

Arjan van de Ven (7):
async: Asynchronous function calls to speed up kernel boot
fastboot: make scsi probes asynchronous
fastboot: make the libata port scan asynchronous
fastboot: Make libata initialization even more async
async: make the final inode deletion an asynchronous event
bootchart: improve output based on Dave Jones' feedback
async: don't do the initcall stuff post boot
