Hi Linus !

Here are a few things for -rc2, this time it's all written by me so it
can only be perfect .... right ? :)

So we have the fix to call irq_enter/exit on the irq stack we've been
discussing, plus a cleanup on top to remove an unused (and broken)
stack limit tracking feature (well, make it 32-bit only in fact where
it is used and works properly).

Then we have two things that I wrote over the last couple of days and
made the executive decision to include just because I can (and I'm sure
you won't object .... right ?).

They fix a couple of annoying and long standing "issues":

 - We had separate zImages for when booting via Open Firmware vs.
booting via a flat device-tree, while it's trivial to make one that
deals with both

 - We wasted a ton of cycles spinning secondary CPUs uselessly at boot
instead of starting them when needed on pseries, thus contributing
significantly to global warming.

Cheers,
Ben.
