The patchset contains mainly scalability and NUMA stuff, and anything
else that stops things from irritating me. It's meant to be pretty stable,
not so much a testing ground for new stuff.

I'd be very interested in feedback from anyone willing to test on any
platform, however large or small.


additional patches that can be applied if desired:

(these two form the qlogic feral driver)

Since 2.5.70-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

Notes: I've left out some shiny new bits people have sent me because there
       were a few things that were just broken. Fixing those up before
       piling more on. Various floating fixes merged back into their main
       elements to make maintaince easier (possible?)

Now in Linus' tree:

+ numaq_apic_handling Martin J. Bligh
        Fix numaq code to use phys apic ids
+ remove_x86_summit Martin J. Bligh
        remove the magic switch - genarch is better
+ target_cpus Martin J. Bligh
        Fix up target cpus mask handling
+ backout_locking The ghost of patches past
        dcache_lock-vs-tasklist_lock broke my box. I'm grumpy.
