> - Not saving registers like CR when not needed
>
> It also adds support to any TASK_SIZE

> Patchset:
> 01 - powerpc/8xx: remove remaining unnecessary code in FixupDAR
> 02 - powerpc/8xx: remove tests on PGDIR entry validity
> 03 - powerpc32: Use kmem_cache memory for PGDIR
> 04 - powerpc/8xx: Take benefit of aligned PGDIR
> 05 - powerpc/8xx: Optimise access to swapper_pg_dir
> 06 - powerpc/8xx: Remove duplicated code in set_context()
> 07 - powerpc/8xx: macro for handling CPU15 errata
> 08 - powerpc/8xx: Handle CR out of exception PROLOG/EPILOG
> 09 - powerpc/8xx: dont save CR in SCRATCH registers
> 10 - powerpc/8xx: Use SPRG2 instead of DAR for saving r3
> 11 - powerpc/8xx: Add support for TASK_SIZE greater than 0x80000000
