[PATCH 1/5] net/appletalk: push down BKL into a atalk_dgram_ops
Making the BKL usage explicit in appletalk makes it more obvious where it is used, reduces code size and helps getting rid of the BKL in common code. I did not analyse how to kill lock_kernel from appletalk entirely, this will involve either proving that it's not needed, or replacing with a proper mutex or spinl... 5 Nov 2009 13:23

An assortment of TuxOnIce resume panics on a Radeon KMS-running system in, lzo-related?
I'm not quite sure where to send these. LKML may not be interested 'cos TuxOnIce is out-of-tree. The tuxonice list may not be interested because these panics don't look like they're in the tuxonice code. It might be an lzo compressor bug, or even a RAM fault intermittently revealed by lzo compressor bugs yet oddly ... 5 Nov 2009 14:31
