      [PATCH] x86: PARAVIRT: add hooks to intercept mm creation and destruction · d6dd61c8
      Jeremy Fitzhardinge authored
      
      
      Add hooks to allow a paravirt implementation to track the lifetime of
      an mm.  Paravirtualization requires three hooks, but only two are
      needed in common code.  They are:
      
      arch_dup_mmap, which is called when a new mmap is created at fork
      
      arch_exit_mmap, which is called when the last process reference to an
        mm is dropped, which typically happens on exit and exec.
      
      The third hook is activate_mm, which is called from the arch-specific
      activate_mm() macro/function, and so doesn't need stub versions for
      other architectures.  It's called when an mm is first used.

      [PATCH] more for_each_cpu() conversions · 394e3902
      Andrew Morton authored
      
      
      When we stop allocating percpu memory for not-possible CPUs we must not touch
      the percpu data for not-possible CPUs at all.  The correct way of doing this
      is to test cpu_possible() or to use for_each_cpu().
      
      This patch is a kernel-wide sweep of all instances of NR_CPUS.  I found very
      few instances of this bug, if any.  But the patch converts lots of open-coded
      test to use the preferred helper macros.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
