SubjectRe: PROBLEM: 3.0-rc kernels unbootable since -rc3

Sorry for the delay (again), I have to work very late Fridays and Saturdays.
Anyway, I have tested the six commits on my v3.0-rc4 branch (with
f8b7fc6b514f34a5 and a46e0899eec7a3069bc reverted) and can confirm
that they _all_ produce a bootable kernel at my end.

Btw, you may have noticed that my config has RCU_BOOST=n?
If I build a simple v3.0-rc4 kernel (ie one which includes the four
original commits (f8b7fc6b514, a46e0899eec, 09223371dea and
9a432736904)) but with RCU_BOOST=y it _will_ boot. I didn't know if
this was helpful or not.

If it is helpful, you probably know this, but in order to get
RCU_BOOST=y I have to change a couple of other configs - PREEMPT_RCU=y
(previously n) and to get PREEMPT_RCU=y, my preemption model has to be
'Preemptible Kernel (Low-Latency Desktop)' - PREEMPT=y (instead of
'Voluntary Kernel Preemption (Desktop)' - PREEMPT=n which it was

It's my day off tomorrow so I'll do some more testing (on -rc5 and
-rc6) (past 1.30am here in the UK now).
