.. yeah, that helps.

Anyway, I've pulled it in, but got a conflict on the kernel_thread
cleanups from Al. And since the conflict was in the powerpc assembly
code that I don't really know the details of, I did the
straightforward resolve of it, but I'd like you to check it out.

(I haven't pushed it out yet, I'm waiting for the allmodconfig to
finish compiling, so if you see this email quickly, but don't see the
powerpc merge yet, just wait a few minutes)
