[PATCH] serial 8250: fixes for Alchemy uarts.
Limit the amount of address space claimed for Alchemy serial ports to 0x1000. On the Au1300, ports are only 0x1000 apart, and the registers only extend to 0x110 at most on all supported alchemy models. On the Au1300 the autodetect logic no longer works and this makes it necessary to specify the port type through... 28 Oct 2009 17:22

[PATCH 1/6] fsnotify: kill FSNOTIFY_EVENT_FILE
Some fsnotify operations send a struct file. This is more information than we technically need. We instead send a struct path in all cases instead of sometimes a path and sometimes a file.
