no, it does not work fine. As i said, i reworked various small bits
along the way of reviewing and integrating them, under the obvious
assumption that you submitted the latest and greatest. I spent hours
testing every single step as well. If you cannot get your workflow right
then we cannot have this stuff in v2.6.28.

So ... please send append-only changes against tip/cpus4096-v2. We can
squash/backmerge any bits to keep it all clean, but all changes have to
be fully visible and fully reviewed from now on, because time is running
