Fix init/main.c to use regular printk with '%pF' for initcall fn

.. small detail, but the silly e1000e initcall warning debugging caused
me to look at this code. Rather than gouge my eyes out with a spoon, I
just fixed it.

e1000e: Fix incorrect debug warning

Doing 'WARN_ON(preempt_count())' was horribly horribly wrong, and would
cause tons of warnings at bootup if PREEMPT was enabled because the
initcalls currently run with the kernel lock, which increments the
preempt count.

At the same time, the warning was also insufficient, since it didn't
check that interrupts were enabled.

The proper debug function to use for something that can sleep and wants
a warning if it's called in the wrong context is 'might_sleep()'.

Check mapped ranges on sysfs resource files

This is loosely based on a patch by Jesse Barnes to check the user-space
PCI mappings though the sysfs interfaces. Quoting Jesse's original
explanation:

It's fairly common for applications to map PCI resources through sysfs.
However, with the current implementation, it's possible for an application
to map far more than the range corresponding to the resourceN file it
opened. This patch plugs that hole by checking the range at mmap time,
similar to what is done on platforms like sparc64 in their lower level
PCI remapping routines.

It was initially put together to help debug the e1000e NVRAM corruption
problem, since we initially thought an X driver might be walking past the
end of one of its mappings and clobbering the NVRAM. It now looks like
that's not the case, but doing the check is still important for obvious
reasons.

and this version of the patch differs in that it uses a helper function
to clarify the code, and does all the checks in pages (instead of bytes)
in order to avoid overflows when doing "<< PAGE_SHIFT" etc.

e1000e: debug contention on NVM SWFLAG

This patch adds a mutex to the e1000e driver that would help
catch any collisions of two e1000e threads accessing hardware
at the same time.

e1000e: drop stats lock

the stats lock is left over from e1000, e1000e no longer
has the adjust tbi stats function that required the addition
of the stats lock to begin with.

e1000e: do not ever sleep in interrupt context

e1000e was apparently calling two functions that attempted to reserve
the SWFLAG bit for exclusive (to hardware and firmware) access to
the PHY and NVM (aka eeprom). These accesses could possibly call
msleep to wait for the resource which is not allowed from interrupt
context.

mm: handle initialising compound pages at orders greater than MAX_ORDER

When we initialise a compound page we initialise the page flags and head
page pointer for all base pages spanned by that page. When we initialise
a gigantic page (a page of order greater than or equal to MAX_ORDER) we
have to initialise more than MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES pages. Currently we
assume that all elements of the mem_map in this page are contigious in
memory. However this is only guarenteed out to MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES pages,
and with SPARSEMEM enabled they will not be contigious. This leads us to
walk off the end of the first section and scribble on everything which
follows, BAD.

When we reach a MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES boundary we much locate the next
section of the mem_map. As gigantic pages can only be maximally aligned
we know this will occur at exact multiple of MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES pages from
the start of the page.

This is a bug fix for the gigantic page support in hugetlbfs.

Credit to Mel Gorman for spotting the issue.

mm: tiny-shmem nommu fix

The previous patch db203d53d474aa068984e409d807628f5841da1b ("mm:
tiny-shmem fix lock ordering: mmap_sem vs i_mutex") to fix the lock
ordering in tiny-shmem breaks shared anonymous and IPC memory on NOMMU
architectures because it was using the expanding truncate to signal ramfs
to allocate a physically contiguous RAM backing the inode (otherwise it is
unusable for "memory mapping" it to userspace).

However do_truncate is what caused the lock ordering error, due to it
taking i_mutex. In this case, we can actually just call ramfs directly to
allocate memory for the mapping, rather than go via truncate.

memory hotplug: missing zone->lock in test_pages_isolated()

__test_page_isolated_in_pageblock() in mm/page_isolation.c has a comment
saying that the caller must hold zone->lock. But the only caller of that
function, test_pages_isolated(), does not hold zone->lock and the lock is
also not acquired anywhere before. This patch adds the missing zone->lock
to test_pages_isolated().

We reproducibly run into BUG_ON(!PageBuddy(page)) in __offline_isolated_pages()
during memory hotplug stress test, see trace below. This patch fixes that
problem, it would be good if we could have it in 2.6.27.

board to hang at boot. The MPC8544DS is unique in that it doesn't use
the PCI slots on the ULI (unlike the MPC8572DS or MPC8610HPCD). So
the dummy read at the end of the address space causes us to hang.

We can detect the situation by comparing the bridge's BARs versus
