[PATCH] SELinux: fix bug in Netlink message type detection

This patch fixes a bug in the SELinux Netlink message type detection code,
where the wrong constant was being used in a case statement.  The incorrect
value is not valid for this class of object so it would not have been
reached, and fallen through to a default handler for all Netlink messages.

[PATCH] fix crash in entry.S restore_all

Fix the access-above-bottom-of-stack crash.

1. Allows to preserve the valueable optimization

2. Works for NMIs

3.  Doesn't care whether or not there are more of the like instances
   where the stack is left empty.

4. Seems to work for me without the crashes:)

(akpm: this is still under discussion, although I _think_ it's OK.  You might
want to hold off)

[PATCH] re-export cancel_rearming_delayed_workqueue

This was unexported by Arjan because we have no current users.

However, during a conversion from tasklets to workqueues of the parisc led
functions, we ran across a case where this was needed.  In particular, the
open coded equivalent of cancel_rearming_delayed_workqueue was implemented
incorrectly, which is, I think, all the evidence necessary that this is a
useful API.

[PATCH] crypto: call zlib end functions on deflate exit path

In the deflate_[compress|uncompress|pcompress] functions we call the
zlib_[in|de]flateReset function at the beginning.  This is OK.  But when we
unload the deflate module we don't call zlib_[in|de]flateEnd to free all
the zlib internal data.  It looks like a bug for me.  Please, consider the
attached patch.

From: Russell King <rmk+lkml@arm.linux.org.uk>

Oddly, max_low_pfn/max_pfn end up being the number of pages in the system,
rather than the maximum PFN on ARM.  This doesn't seem to cause any problems,
so just add a note about it.

The ARM dma_supported() is rather basic, and I don't think it takes into
account everything that it should do (eg, whether the mask agrees with what
we'd return for GFP_DMA allocations).  Note this.

[PATCH] arm: fix SIGBUS handling

\r)

From: Russell King <rmk+lkml@arm.linux.org.uk>

ARM wasn't raising a SIGBUS with a siginfo structure.  Fix
__do_user_fault() to allow us to use it for SIGBUS conditions, and arrange
for the sigbus path to use this.

We need to prevent the siginfo code being called if we do not have a user
space context to call it, so consolidate the "user_mode()" tests.

Thanks to Ian Campbell who spotted this oversight.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
infrastructure for it.

Let it rip!
