As Nick indicates, -mm kernels now contain SMP/NUMA and SMT patches
which need serious testing.
Ingo seems OK with the approach and as we do need to converge on a
2.6 solution for these issues fairly promptly I would appreciate
it if the big-SMP and NUMA folks could evaluate this work and
provide feedback and testing results.

This also includes my SMP / NUMA scheduler work, so it should help
larger SMP and especially NUMA systems. Testing would be good.
