The patchset contains mainly performance, 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.

Since 2.6.0-test10-mjb1 (~ = changed, + = added, - = dropped)

Notes:  Hugepages should now get used automatically for both shmem 
and anonymous mmap segments.

Now in Linus' tree:

- scsi_fix					Mike Anderson
        Fix kobject oops.



+ stacktrace					Adam Litke
	Stack backtracing via frame pointers

+ implicit_huge_pages 				Adam Litke / wli / Brian T.
	Implicit huge pages for mmap and shmem

+ amd_sysrq_t					Badari
	Fix amd sysrq+t not to print the same stack for everyone. Doh!

4/4 split
Hyperthreaded scheduler (Ingo Molnar)
scheduler callers profiling (Anton or Bill Hartner)
Child runs first (akpm)
e1000 fixes
pidmaps_nodepages (Dave Hansen)
