Full Changelog

Tons of changes all over the map. The diff is large, partly because the 
s390x support got merged into the s390 port as a 64-bit subset, and the 
old s390x architecture files thus became irrelevant. And a merge with Alan 
gave us a another architecture instead - h8300.

Lots of dvb updates (digital video), again through Alan. And a major 
aic79xx driver update.

Oh, and the devfs stuff by Christoph means that devfs users should beware:  
in particular, devfs users need to mount the pts filesystem like everybody 
else does, that duplication got killed.

Other than that, just a ton of updates. See changelog for details.

    avoid name collisions.

    bugs and simplify the handling of loader-created sections.

  o SCSI tape sysfs and module parameter additions

Keith Owens:
  o ia64: unwind.c - allow unw_access_gr(r0)
  o ia64: mca rendezvous fix

Kochi Takayoshi:
  o ia64: update email address

Linus Torvalds:
  o Avoid using pointers to anonymous structure initializers. It's a
    gcc'ism, and even gcc can apparently get confused by it.
  o Make it more explicit that jiffies are "unsigned long", but that we
    for the initial value ctually want to check only wrap-around in an
    "unsigned int". 
  o Fix up merge with Alan
  o More left-over fixups from the merge with Alan
  o Fix mtdblock.c compile. From Adrian Bunk
  o Add __user/__kernel address space modifiers. When not checking,
    these end up being no-ops, but they get enabled by the type checker
    as special address_space attributes.
  o Add the proper sprinkling of __user attributes to the user space
    access functions. This allows the type checker to check proper
    usage.
  o Add __user attributes to user pointers in kernel/signal.c. This was
    the first file tested with my type checker with the anal pointer
    attribute checking turned on.
  o Make __SI_MASK explicitly unsigned, instead of depending on magic C
    promotion to silently do so for us.
  o Annotate scheduler system calls as taking user pointers
  o Annotate i386/signal.c with address space type annotations
  o Add user pointer attributes to kernel/module.c
  o Annotate fs/exec.c with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate fs/namei.c with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate x87 user space access functions with proper type
    attributes
  o User pointers are not just in another address space, they also must
    never be dereferenced directly. Make that clear in the attribute.
  o Add user pointer attributes to kernel/sys.c
  o Tag more user-supplied path strings as being user pointers for type
    evaluation.  This tags the system call interfaces in fs/open.c,
    fs/dcache.c and mm/swapfile.c - and tags the path walking helper
    functions.
  o Annotate sysct with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate kernel/time.c with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate uid16 with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate kernel/ptrace.c with user pointer information
  o Annotate kernel/printk.c with user pointer annotations
  o Fix bad prototypes in kernel/softirq.c
  o Fix kernel/posix-timers.c
  o Merge from DRI CVS: Use the list_entry() macro instead of depending
  o Annotate fs/stat.c with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate kernel/futex.c with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate kernel/itimer.c with user pointer annotations
  o Annotate read/write paths with user pointer annotations
  o Clean up types and remove unnecessary casts from fs/readdir.c
  o Add user pointer annotations to fs/seq_file.c
  o Add user pointer annotations to fs/super.c
  o Add user pointer annotations to fs/select.c
  o Add a user pointer annotation to sysinfo()
  o Make sure to kunmap() the right address in fs/nfs/dir.c
  o Annotate sys_uselib() with user pointer annotation
  o Remove all of arch/s390x and include/asm-s390x, since the 390x
    architecture is now just a 64-bit configuration option of the basic
    s390 architecture.
  o Store EDID only when CONFIG_VIDEO_SELECT is set and edid function
    actually exists.
  o Make the x86 flags save/restore code check the type of the macro
    argument, so that portability issues will be found in a timely
    manner.
  o Fix incorrect 'flags' usage pointed out by stricter type checking
  o Fix typo (and logic bug that the typo hid) in bit value testing. 
  o Annotate sys_nfsservctl() with user pointer annotations
  o Fix user pointer annotations in more places, now that 'sparse'
    verifies declarations against definitions and checks argument
    types.
  o Annotate namespace system calls (mount, umount, pivot_root etc)
    with user pointer annotations.
  o Add more user pointer annotations
  o Don't allow rmap to touch reserved or out-of-range pages
  o Cleanups: remove unused label and fix crappy counting code that
    didn't work.
