People keep bugging me about the -ac tree stuff so this is whats in my
current internal diff with the ll patch and the ide changes excluded.

Much of this is stuff just waiting to go to Marcelo but it has the 32bit
uid quota that some folks consider pretty critical and the rmap-11b VM
which I consider pretty essential

(Marcelo I'll be sending you stuff I've done from this anyway, if there
 is other stuff you want extracting just ask)
