    Subject[PATCH 0/12]: Sparc64 dynamic per-cpu support.

    This patch set converts sparc64 over to use the dynamic per-cpu stuff.

    Most of the work is the boring task of getting rid of the special
    "real_setup_per_cpu_areas()" sparc64 uses to setup the per-cpu areas
    before bootmem is available. We needed to do this because we
    initialized the cpu possible map at the same time as the stuff stored
    in the per-cpu cpu_data array.

    So we split those tasks up. Otherwise we wouldn't be able to convert
    to dynamic per-cpu because that stuff requires that bootmem and the
    page structs are ready to use.

    For now I'm using the draconian unoptimized x86 NUMA remap scheme. I
    really want to do this better because it is insanely suboptimal on
    Niagara chips where in some cases 8 cpus share the same physical TLB.

    This is against Linus's current tree and it's also in sparc-next-2.6
