Dave Jones: Linux 2.5.20-dj4

Kernel.org Mirrors

Sync up with some small bits from latest 2.4pre, a few pending
items, and the initial merge of the CPU frequency scaling code.
This should also fix the problems that various people saw with

There's quite a bit in this diff since -dj3, despite the small
changelog. I want to make sure this stuff is ok before moving on
to the other interesting bits in the queue.

As usual,..

Patch against 2.5.20 vanilla is available from:

Check http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/Linux-2.5.html before reporting
known bugs that are also in mainline.
