Things are a bit crazy lately.  Merge issues with mapletree, merge
issues with mglru on mapletree, me doing a bunch of retooling to start
publishing/merging via git, mapletree runtime issues, etc.

I've dropped the mapletree patches again.  Please scoop up all known
fixes and redo against the (non-rebasing) mm-stable branch at

The mm-unstable branch is a rebasing tree which contains mm-stable as
well as all the quilt-based MM material which isn't final enough to get
into mm-stable.  So before sending please do a test merge with mm-unstable,
evaluate any issues which might be encountered.

I'd prefer to concentrate on getting mapletree stabilized and landed
for now, worry about mglru after that.
