  just a small update on the work on progress:
      --> 88 files
      --> 62 files
      --> 32 files
      --> 20 files
      --> 12 files
      --> 6 files (4 in drivers/message/fusion)
      --> 26 files
      --> 19 files
      --> 11 files
      --> 4 files
      --> 3 files
      --> 1 file

So, I hope that this job will be finished for the next -rc.

However, any help for 'drivers/message/fusion' would be appreciated.

My strategy to check all callers to be sure that GFP_KERNEL or 
GFP_ATOMIC is fine doesn't work well here.
Someone with a more global view of this (huge) driver would help a lot.

Also, at the beginning, I planned only to make the 
pci_[z]alloc_consistent part. So now that is it mostly done, if anyone 
feel like looking at the other conversions, it should be only some 
mechanical stuff.
