    [PATCH] ppc64: cleanup SPR definitions

    There are a bunch of irrelevant SPR definitions in asm/processer.h.  Cut
    them down a bit, also add a DABR_TRANSLATION define which will be used
    shortly.

    [PATCH] ext3: fix list scanning in __cleanup_transaction

    Fix a bug in list scanning that can cause us to skip the last buffer on the
    checkpoint list (and hence fail to do any progress under some rather
    unfavorable conditions).
    
    The problem is we first do jh=next_jh and then test
    
    	} while (jh!=last_jh);
    
    Hence we skip the last buffer on the list (if it was not the only buffer on
    the list).  As we already do jh=next_jh; in the beginning of the loop we
    are safe to just remove the assignment in the end.  It can happen that 'jh'
    will be freed at the point we test jh != last_jh but that does not matter
    as we never *dereference* the pointer.

    [PATCH] ext3: fix log_do_checkpoint() assertion failure

    Fix possible false assertion failure in log_do_checkpoint().  We might fail
    to detect that we actually made a progress when cleaning up the checkpoint
    lists if we don't retry after writing something to disk.  The patch was
    confirmed to fix observed assertion failures for several users.
    
    When we flushed some buffers we need to retry scanning the list.
    Otherwise we can fail to detect our progress.

    [PATCH] ppc64: Fix result code handling in prom_init

    prom_init(), the trampoline code that "talks" to Open Firmware during
    early boot, has various issues with managing OF result codes. Some of my
    recent fixups in fact made the problem worse on some platforms.
    
    This patch reworks it all. Tested on g5, Maple, POWER3 and POWER5.

    [PATCH] ppc32/ppc64: cleanup /proc/device-tree

    This cleans up the /proc/device-tree representation of the Open Firmware
    device-tree on ppc and ppc64.  It does the following things:
    
     - Workaround an issue in some Apple device-trees where a property may
       exist with the same name as a child node of the parent.  We now
       simply "drop" the property instead of creating duplicate entries in
       /proc with random result...
    
     - Do not try to chop off the "@0" at the end of a node name whose unit
       address is 0.  This is not useful, inconsistent, and the code was
       buggy and didn't always work anyway.
    
     - Do not create symlinks for the short name and unit address parts of a
       node.  These were never really used, bloated the memory footprint of
       the device-tree with useless struct proc_dir_entry and their matching
       dentry and inode cache bloat.
    
    This results in smaller code, smaller memory footprint, and a more
    accurate view of the tree presented to userland.

    [PATCH] ppc64: Fix a device-tree bug on Apple's

    Apple's Open Firmware has a funny bug when creating the /cpus nodes
    where it leaves a dangling '\0' character in the CPU name which ends up
    appearing in the full path of the node. This is bogus and
    confuses /proc/device-tree badly.
    
    This patch strips those bogus zero's from the node full path when
    reading the device-tree from Open Firmware. The "name" property is not
    modified and still contains the spurrious 0 (it basically contains 0
    tailing 0 instead of one) but that shouldn't be a problem.
    
    An equivalent patch for ppc32 will follow shortly

    [PATCH] [4/5] ondemand governor automatic downscaling
    
    Here is a change of policy for the ondemand governor. The modification
    concerns the frequency downscaling. Instead of decreasing to a lower
    frequency when the CPU usage is under 20%, this new policy automatically
    scales to the optimal frequency. The optimal frequency being the lowest
    frequency which provides enough power to not trigger the upscaling policy.
