It'll be part of Len's next push.  Sorry I should have kept that in the
patch so as not to confuse people.  I've been working hard to get all of
the non-ia64 specific code out into Linus' tree already, including some
bootmem allocator fixes and such, this one just took a little longer
because Andy stepped down as maintainer at around the same time I sent
my (trivial) patch out to fix this.

Btw, which piece(s) of the patch would you like first?  Is seperating
the contig and discontig functions into seperate files worthwhile?  I
can comment things a bit more too while I'm at it...
