Hi Linus, early in this cycle Daniel Vetter supplied a number of fixes
for memory corruption bugs following module unload of i915.ko. We
postponed these to the next cycle. However, as Thomas Gleixner pointed
out, we should have not left the known memory corruption bugs lie in the
kernel and should have prevented the module unload instead.

The following changes since commit 6b0cd00bc396daf5c2dcf17a8d82055335341f46:

  Merge branch 'hwpoison-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ak/linux-mce-2.6 (2010-10-07 13:59:32 -0700)

are available in the git repository at:
