Subject: 2.4.0-test12-pre7
The only reason for this pre7 is to resolve some warring patches in the
cs46xx driver.
 - test7:
    - Kai Germaschewski: ymfpci cleanups and resource leak fixes
    - me: UHCI drivers really need to enable bus mastering.
    - Trond Myklebust: fix up nfs_writepage_sync() to not require "filp".
    - Andrew Morton: "tq_scheduler" is no more. We have keventd.
    - Nils Faerber: cs46xx sounddriver update
 - pre6:
    - Alan Cox: synch. PA-RISC arch and bitops cleanups
    - Maciej Rozycki: even more proper apic setup order.
    - Andrew Morton: exec_usermodehelper fixes
    - Adam Richter, Kai Germaschewski, me: PCI irq routing.
    - revert A20 code changes. We really need to use the keyboard
      controller if one exists.
    - Johannes Erdfelt: USB updates
    - Ralf Baechle: MIPS memmove() fix.
 - pre5:
    - Jaroslav Kysela: ymfpci driver
    - me: get rid of bogus MS_INVALIDATE semantics
    - me: final part of the PageDirty() saga
    - Rusty Russell: 4-way SMP iptables fix
    - Al Viro: oops - bad ext2 inode dirty block bug
 - pre4:
    - Andries Brouwer: final isofs pieces.
    - Kai Germaschewski: ISDN
    - play CD audio correctly, don't stop after 12 minutes.
    - Anton Altaparmakov: disable NTFS mmap for now, as it doesn't work.
    - Stephen Tweedie: fix inode dirty block handling
    - Bill Hartner: reschedule_idle - prefer right cpu
    - Johannes Erdfelt: USB updates
    - Alan Cox: synchronize
    - Richard Henderson: alpha updates and optimizations
    - Geert Uytterhoeven: fbdev could be fooled into crashing fix
    - Trond Myklebust: NFS filehandles in inode rather than dentry
 - pre3:
    - me: more PageDirty / swapcache handling
    - Neil Brown: raid and md init fixes
    - David Brownell: pci hotplug sanitization.
    - Kanoj Sarcar: mips64 update
    - Kai Germaschewski: ISDN sync
    - Andreas Bombe: ieee1394 cleanups and fixes
    - Johannes Erdfelt: USB update
    - David Miller: Sparc and net update
    - Trond Myklebust: RPC layer SMP fixes
    - Thomas Sailer: mixed sound driver fixes
    - Tigran Aivazian: use atomic_dec_and_lock() for free_uid()
 - pre2:
    - Peter Anvin: more P4 configuration parsing
    - Stephen Tweedie: O_SYNC patches. Make O_SYNC/fsync/fdatasync
      do the right thing.
    - Keith Owens: make mdule loading use the right struct module size
    - Boszormenyi Zoltan: get MTRR's right for the >32-bit case
    - Alan Cox: various random documentation etc
    - Dario Ballabio: EATA and u14-34f update
    - Ivan Kokshaysky: unbreak alpha ruffian
    - Richard Henderson: PCI bridge initialization on alpha
    - Zach Brown: correct locking in Maestro driver
    - Geert Uytterhoeven: more m68k updates
    - Andrey Savochkin: eepro100 update
    - Dag Brattli: irda update
    - Johannes Erdfelt: USB update
 - pre1: (for ISDN synchronization _ONLY_! Not complete!)
    - Byron Stanoszek: correct decimal precision for CPU MHz in
    - Ollie Lho: SiS pirq routing.
    - Andries Brouwer: isofs cleanups
    - Matt Kraai: /proc read() on directories should return EISDIR, not EINVAL
    - me: be stricter about what we accept as a PCI bridge setup.
    - me: always set PCI interrupts to be level-triggered when we enable them.
    - me: updated PageDirty and swap cache handling
    - Peter Anvin: update A20 code to work without keyboard controller
    - Kai Germaschewski: ISDN updates
    - Russell King: ARM updates
    - Geert Uytterhoeven: m68k updates
