There was a conflict in discontig.c with Bob Picco's memory-less nodes
patch ... which I resolved, it would be helpful if someone looked at
it to see that I got it right.  Patch is in my GIT tree (or will be
when mirroring makes it visible).

Generic kernels don't boot on Tiger ... they oops in tiocx_init().
Turning off CONFIG_SGI_TIOCX works around this for now, but this needs
to be fixed.

Oh ... apologies to Dann ... in the commit commentary I said that
Greg had dug this back up out of obscurity.

Yes, it would be nice to apply some more cleanup ... but I've let
this patch get too stale before, so I put it in as-is for now.
