I've already sent the pull request (it's late enough already for the
first bunch of stuff... Linus' truely brilliant timing for the N'th
time sees the merge window open when I'm away - why does he keep doing
that to me?) for everything _except_ stuff in my 'devel-stable' branch,
which includes the opcodes, virt, and new cache maintanence stuff.

I won't be sending Linus another pull request until at least three
days after he merges the current request, so we'll just have to hope
that this doesn't turn out to be a short merge window...
