In some situations one may want zone_reclaim to behave differently.  For

performance of processes running on other nodes.

Allowing writes during reclaim puts a stop to that behavior and throttles the
process by restricting the pages to the local zone.

Similarly one may want to contain processes to local memory by enabling
regular swap behavior during zone_reclaim.  Off node memory allocation can
then be controlled through memory policies and cpusets.

After releasing the posix-timer lock and before returning to hrtimer_run_queue

CPU0 comes back to hrtimer_run_queue and sets the timer state to expired.

The next modification of the timer can result in an oops, because the state
information is wrong.

Keep track of state = RUNNING and check if the state has been in the return

[PATCH] fuse: fix async read for legacy filesystems

While asynchronous reads mean a performance improvement in most cases, if
the filesystem assumed that reads are synchronous, then async reads may
degrade performance (filesystem may receive reads out of order, which can
confuse it's own readahead logic).

With sshfs a 1.5 to 4 times slowdown can be measured.

There's also a need for userspace filesystems to know whether asynchronous
reads are supported by the kernel or not.

To achive these, negotiate in the INIT request whether async reads will be
used and the maximum readahead value.  Update interface version to 7.6

If userspace uses a version earlier than 7.6, then disable async reads, and
set maximum readahead value to the maximum read size, as done in previous
versions.

Handle more bogus MCFG entries

Some Asus P4 boards seem to have broken MCFG tables with
only a single entry for busses 0-0.  Special case these
and assume they mean all busses can be accessed.

[PATCH] powerpc/PCI hotplug: shuffle error checking to better location.

Error checking is scattered through various layers of the dlpar code,
leading to a somewhat opaque code structure. This patch consolidates
error checking in one routine, simplifying the code a tad. There's
also some whitespace cleanup here too.
