The LDT fixes in particular fix some potentially random strange behaviour.
And the alpha memmove() thing was a showstopper bug on alphas.



- pre7: - x86 LDT handling fixes: revert some cleanups (the LDT really doesn't act like a TLB context) - Richard Henderson: alpha update (working memmove() from Ivan Kokshaysky etc) - Manfred: winbond-840.c net driver update (fix oops on module unload etc) - Alan Cox: more synchronizations (with some fixes from Andrew Morton)

- pre6: - Marc Joosen: BIOS int15/e820 memory query: don't assume %edx unchanged by the BIOS. Fixes at least some IBM ThinkPads. - Alan Cox: synchronize - Marcelo Tosatti & me: properly sync dirty pages - Andreas Dilger: proper ext2 compat flag checking

- pre5: - NIIBE Yutaka: SuperH update - Geert Uytterhoeven: m68k update - David Miller: TCP RTO calc fix, UDP multicast fix etc - Duncan Laurie: ServerWorks PIRQ routing definition. - mm PageDirty cleanups, added sanity checks, and don't lose the bit.

- pre4: - Christoph Rohland: shmfs cleanup - Nicolas Pitre: don't forget loop.c flags - Geert Uytterhoeven: new-style m68k Makefiles - Neil Brown: knfsd cleanups, raid5 re-org - Andrea Arkangeli: update to LVM-0.9 - LC Chang: sis900 driver doc update - David Miller: netfilter oops fix - Andrew Grover: acpi update

- pre3: - Christian Jullien: smc9194: proper dev_kfree_skb_irq - Cort Dougan: new-style PowerPC Makefiles - Andrew Morton, Petr Vandrovec: fix run_task_queue - Christoph Rohland: shmfs for shared memory handling

- pre2: - Kai Germaschewski: ISDN update (including Makefiles) - Jens Axboe: cdrom updates - Petr Vandrovec; Matrox G450 support - Bill Nottingham: fix FAT32 filesystems on 64-bit platforms - David Miller: sparc (and other) Makefile fixup - Andrea Arkangeli: alpha SMP TLB context fix (and cleanups) - Niels Kristian Bech Jensen: checkconfig, USB warnings - Andrew Grover: large ACPI update

- pre1: - me: drop support for old-style Makefiles entirely. Big. - me: check b_end_io at the IO submission path - me: fix "ptep_mkdirty()" (so that swapoff() works correctly) - fix fault case in copy_from_user() with a constant size, where ((size & 3) == 3)
