Thanks a lot, Nathan.  I'll set aside my disappointment and curiosity,
clearly I'm not going to have much of a future as a MIPS programmer.

I must take a break, then rush Andrew the second patch, well, not
exactly that second patch, since most of that is revert: I'll just
send the few lines of replacement patch (with a new Subject line, as
update_mmu_cache() goes back to being separate from __update_tlb()).

Unless you object, I'll include a Tested-by: you.  I realize that
your testing is limited to seeing it running; but that's true of
most of the testing at this stage - it gets to be more interesting
when the patch that adds the rcu_read_lock() and rcu_read_unlock()
is added on top later.

Thanks again,
