Ok, the new MM balancing has been getting good reviews, and no longer has
any known issues. Integrated. We'd have needed to do it sooner or later
anyway (just see what happened in 2.2.x), the sooner we do it the less
traumatic it will end up being.
Oh, and yeah, there obviously was still a truncate issue left.
The patch is largish, mainly due SysKonnect and ACPI reorg patches.
- USB: OHCI controller unlink and bandwidth reclamation fixes
- USB: storage update
- sparc64: register window race. Non-deadlock rwlocks.
- name clash in hamradio/pi2.c and hamradio/pt.c
- epic100 credits, 8139too driver update, sr.c initcalls
- acenic update
- NFS sillyrename fixups
- mktime(). Do it just once - not 16 times.
- misc small fixes to random drivers by Tigran
- IDE driver picks up master/slave relationships on its own.
- truncate unmapped/uptodate case handled correctly
- don't do notifier locking at low level: higher levels do (or
should do) this already.
- ACPI interpreter updates (and file renames - making this part big)
- SysKonnect gigabit driver update
- 3c59x driver update
- pcmcia debounce logic. Ugh.
- MM balancing (Rik Riel)
