Hi Eric,
	That based patchset was post days before the OLS....
	I have a much crash path simplified patch set posted a few days before.
	http://www.gelato.unsw.edu.au/archives/linux-ia64/0608/18790.html
	I agree that we should have minmal code in crash path.
	I am trying to simplify that patch set more.

Thanks
Zou Nan hai
