Subject[PATCH 00/18] Make the big kernel lock optional
Date
This is a set of simple patches to remove the big kernel
lock in some remaining areas and introduce a Kconfig
option which I'd like to have included in linux-next
and get included in the 2.6.37 merge window.

I have a total of five topic branches, which together
remove the BKL from all code except those modules
which get marked as 'depends on BKL' in the final
patch of this series.

It's fine if maintainers want to add some of these
patches to their own queue, as long as they all make
it into linux-next.

Stephen, please add
git+ssh://master.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arnd/bkl.git config

Arnd Bergmann (17):
hpet: kill BKL, add compat_ioctl
proc/pci: kill BKL
s390/block: kill the big kernel lock
isapnp: BKL removal
alpha: kill big kernel lock
cris: autoconvert trivial BKL users
m68k: remove big kernel lock
parisc: remove big kernel lock
sh: kill big kernel lock
uml: kill big kernel lock
tlclk: remove big kernel lock
i4l: kill big kernel lock
misdn: kill big kernel lock
dvb/bt8xx: kill the big kernel lock
dvb-core: kill the big kernel lock
rtmutex-tester: make it build without BKL
BKL: introduce CONFIG_BKL.

Al Viro (1):
