Also various non-security bugs were fixed:
- Fix up patch for cpufreq drivers that do not initialize
current freq.
- Handle BIOS cpufreq changes gracefully.
- Updates to inotify handling.
- Various XEN Updates.
- Catches processor declarations with same ACPI id (P4HT)
- PowerPC: g5 thermal overtemp bug on fluid cooled systems.
- Fixed buffered ACPI events on a lot ASUS and some other machines.
- Fix fs/exec.c:788 (de_thread()) BUG_ON (OSDL 5170).
