    Subject[029/152] bootmem: Add alloc_bootmem_align()
    2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    ------------------

    From: Suresh Siddha <suresh.b.siddha@intel.com>

    commit 53dde5f385bc56e312f78b7cb25ffaf8efd4735d upstream.

    Add an alloc_bootmem_align() interface to allocate bootmem with
    specified alignment. This is necessary to be able to allocate the
    xsave area in a subsequent patch.
