Hi Linus !

Here is a bunch of post-merge window fixes that have been accumulating
in patchwork while I was on vacation or buried under other stuff last

We have the now usual batch of LE fixes from Anton (sadly some new stuff
that went into this merge window had endian issues, we'll try to make
sure we do better next time)

Some fixes and cleanups to the new 24x7 performance monitoring stuff
(mostly typos and cleaning up printk's)

A series of fixes for an issue with our runlatch bit, which wasn't set
properly for offlined threads/cores and under KVM, causing potentially
some counters to misbehave along with possible power management issues.

A fix for kexec nasty race where the new kernel wouldn't "see" the
secondary processors having reached back into firmware in time.

And finally a few other misc (and pretty simple) bug fixes.
