Subject: [PATCH 07/18] powerpc/spufs: Allow gang to grow in size after it has been started
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: inline
Message-Id: <200812101703.13053.adetsch@br.ibm.com>

Just deactivate it, add the new context, and let the calling thread
drives its reactivation.  It needs to be unscheduled, since it may
no longer fit or it may need to be migrated to a different node.
