Made a self contained patch that applies cleanly to 2.4.13pre2 ready
for merging. Many thanks to Janet Morgan for fiding another bug in the
blkdev O_DIRECT support.
Only in 2.4.12aa1: 00_cache-without-buffers-1
Only in 2.4.12aa1: 00_parport-fix-1
Just in mainline.
Only in 2.4.13pre2aa1: 00_files_struct_rcu-2.4.10-04-1
File locking read/write spinlock replaced with RCU.
Only in 2.4.13pre2aa1: 00_ordered-freeing-1
Free the pages so that they gets allocated in physical order later,
shouldn't matter but I got reports of slower in-core (cache)
performance on some arch after a fresh boot, and speedup after the
freelist got randomized by load.
Only in 2.4.13pre2aa1: 00_rcu-poll-1
RCU implementation based on latest Dipankar's patch against 2.4.10.
I changed it so that it only has as fast-path/reader-load cost a
per-cpu counter increment in scheduler and nothing else. It is not
arch dependent either. I also tried to optimized the UP case.

Only in 2.4.13pre2aa1: 00_vm-3
Only in 2.4.13pre2aa1: 00_vm-3.1
Further vm changes, backed out the PG_wait_for_IO since it seems not
to make a relevant difference. Should behave better under swap load.
In particular I'm probing the inactive list from shrink_cache now,
so that I get feedback on when it's time to swap before the shrinks
on the inactive list starts failing.
