David Miller - Oct. 8, 2012, 8:18 p.m.
There is an attempt to fix a bad interaction between syscall tracing
and force_successful_syscall() from Al Viro, but it needs to be redone
as it introduced regressions and thus had to be reverted for now.

Al is working on an updated version.

But what we do have here are some significant bzero/memset
improvements for Niagara-4.  An 8K page can be cleared in around 600
cycles, because we essentially have a store that behaves like
powerpc's dcbz that we can actually make real use of.

Please pull, thanks a lot.
