    The interface provides device drivers, CPUFreq, and DSPBridge with a
    means of controlling OMAP power management parameters that are not yet
    supported by the Linux PM PMQoS interface.  Copious documentation is
    in the patch in Documentation/arm/OMAP/omap_pm and the interface
    header file, arch/arm/plat-omap/include/mach/omap-pm.h.

    support and moving the OPP table initialization earlier in the event

    mm: revert "oom: move oom_adj value"

    kosaki authored torvalds committed
    The commit 2ff05b2 (oom: move oom_adj value) moveed the oom_adj value to
    the mm_struct.  It was a very good first step for sanitize OOM.
    However Paul Menage reported the commit makes regression to his job
    scheduler.  Current OOM logic can kill OOM_DISABLED process.
    Why? His program has the code of similar to the following.
    	set_oom_adj(OOM_DISABLE); /* The job scheduler never killed by oom */
    	if (vfork() == 0) {
    		set_oom_adj(0); /* Invoked child can be killed */
    vfork() parent and child are shared the same mm_struct.  then above
    set_oom_adj(0) doesn't only change oom_adj for vfork() child, it's also
    change oom_adj for vfork() parent.  Then, vfork() parent (job scheduler)
    lost OOM immune and it was killed.
    Actually, fork-setting-exec idiom is very frequently used in userland program.
    We must not break this assumption.
    Then, this patch revert commit 2ff05b2 and related commit.
    Reverted commit list
    - commit 2ff05b2 (oom: move oom_adj value from task_struct to mm_struct)
    - commit 4d8b913 (oom: avoid unnecessary mm locking and scanning for OOM_DISABLE)

    thinkpad-acpi: remove dock and bay subdrivers

    hmh authored lenb committed
    The standard ACPI dock driver can handle the hotplug bays and docks of
    the ThinkPads just fine (including batteries) as of 2.6.27, and the
    code in thinkpad-acpi for the dock and bay subdrivers is currently
    broken anyway...
    Userspace needs some love to support the two-stage ejection nicely,
    but it is simple enough to do through udev rules (you don't even need
    HAL) so this wouldn't justify fixing the dock and bay subdrivers,
    That leaves warm-swap bays (_EJ3) support for thinkpad-acpi, as well
    as support for the weird dock of the model 570, but since such support
    has never left the "experimental" stage, it is also not a strong
    enough reason to find a way to fix this code.
    Users of ThinkPads with warm-swap bays are urged to request that _EJ3
    support be added to the regular ACPI dock driver, if such feature is
    indeed useful for them.

    sysrq, kdump: make sysrq-c consistent

    Hidetoshi Seto authored torvalds committed
    commit d6580a9 ("kexec: sysrq: simplify
    sysrq-c handler") changed the behavior of sysrq-c to unconditional
    dereference of NULL pointer.  So in cases with CONFIG_KEXEC, where
    crash_kexec() was directly called from sysrq-c before, now it can be said
    that a step of "real oops" was inserted before starting kdump.
    However, in contrast to oops via SysRq-c from keyboard which results in
    panic due to in_interrupt(), oops via "echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger" will
    not become panic unless panic_on_oops=1.  It means that even if dump is
    properly configured to be taken on panic, the sysrq-c from proc interface
    might not start crashdump while the sysrq-c from keyboard can start
    crashdump.  This confuses traditional users of kdump, i.e.  people who
    expect sysrq-c to do common behavior in both of the keyboard and proc
    This patch brings the keyboard and proc interface behavior of sysrq-c in
    line, by forcing panic_on_oops=1 before oops in sysrq-c handler.
    And some updates in documentation are included, to clarify that there is
    no longer dependency with CONFIG_KEXEC, and that now the system can just
    crash by sysrq-c if no dump mechanism is configured.
