[PATCH 1/5] Swap iteration functions.
Add the data structure 'storage_position' and routines that allow a caller to iterate over swap in sector order. Note that calling reset_storage_pos only resets the position. next_swapdev_block must also be called to get the address of the first (and subsequent sectors).

kbuild: menuconfig with O=<dir> creates empty include/config in base
When doing "make O=test menuconfig" the base kernel directory picks up a new empty directory include/config which stops further "make O=temp" builds as the make system thinks the base directory is not clean. I've had a look, but it is not easy to see where this is hapening. So far only menuconfig seems to have ... 26 May 2010 03:44
[PATCH 0/2] Enlarge the storage of chars in virtual terminal
Greetings The motivation is display much more characters on the framebuffer console than 512. If this is done, foreign languages can be easily rendered with currently supported utf-8 encoding.

This addresses an interface bug introduced by the following commit: 01effb0 block: allow initialization of previously ... 26 May 2010 01:36
