Hi David,

I am in two minds over this, I agree that getting the sn2 code cleaned
up is a big win and a lot of the changes like those I posted are
clearly bug fixes (not checking kmalloc returns should always be
fixed). However having a big patch will take time and means we will
have to operate with an internal tree until we get the whole thing
into shape to push, but the seperate tree is one of the things we have
been trying to avoid with 2.6. What came first, the chicken or the
soft boiled egg ;-(
