Well, the overlap is unfortunate but I did do a git diff with
tip/core/kill-the-BKL BEFORE I posted.

not sure what the difference is between
tip/kill-the-BKL
and
tip/core/kill-the-BKL
btw

Also
git describe 55968ede164ae523692f00717f50cd926f1382a0
v2.6.31-rc6-4-g55968ed

Not sure what to make of that either, since my patch was against the
latest linus updated this morning.

Frederic: what was your method to discover that patch from Thomas?
