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 three form the qlogic feral driver)

Since 2.5.73-mjb2 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

- sysrq_t_fix Andrew Morton
        Fix sysrq+t breakage where it showed the same stack for everyone
- pci_hotplug Ivan K.
        Fix up pci hotplug w/o hotplug enabled.

+ gcov Hubertus / Rajan / Paul Larson

+ stack_fix William Lee Irwin
        Fix a 4K stack issue

- upside_down William Lee Irwin
