       "Various CPU feature support related changes: in particular the
        /proc/cpuinfo model name sanitization change should be monitored, it
        has a chance to break stuff.  (but really shouldn't and there are no
        regression reports)"

      Pull perf updates from Ingo Molnar:
       "Kernel side changes mostly consist of work on x86 PMU drivers:
      
         - x86 Intel PT (hardware CPU tracer) improvements (Alexander
           Shishkin)
      
         - x86 Intel CQM (cache quality monitoring) improvements (Thomas
           Gleixner)
      
         - x86 Intel PEBSv3 support (Peter Zijlstra)
      
         - x86 Intel PEBS interrupt batching support for lower overhead
           sampling (Zheng Yan, Kan Liang)
      
         - x86 PMU scheduler fixes and improvements (Peter Zijlstra)
      
        There's too many tooling improvements to list them all - here are a
        few select highlights:
      
        'perf bench':
      
            - Introduce new 'perf bench futex' benchmark: 'wake-parallel', to
              measure parallel waker threads generating contention for kernel
              locks (hb->lock). (Davidlohr Bueso)
      
        'perf top', 'perf report':
      
            - Allow disabling/enabling events dynamicaly in 'perf top':
              a 'perf top' session can instantly become a 'perf report'
              one, i.e. going from dynamic analysis to a static one,
              returning to a dynamic one is possible, to toogle the
              modes, just press 'f' to 'freeze/unfreeze' the sampling. (Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo)
      
            - Make Ctrl-C stop processing on TUI, allowing interrupting the load of big
              perf.data files (Namhyung Kim)
      
        'perf probe': (Masami Hiramatsu)
      
            - Support glob wildcards for function name
            - Support $params special probe argument: Collect all function arguments
            - Make --line checks validate C-style function name.
            - Add --no-inlines option to avoid searching inline functions
            - Greatly speed up 'perf probe --list' by caching debuginfo.
            - Improve --filter support for 'perf probe', allowing using its arguments
              on other commands, as --add, --del, etc.
      
        'perf sched':
      
            - Add option in 'perf sched' to merge like comms to lat output (Josef Bacik)
      
        Plus tons of infrastructure work - in particular preparation for
        upcoming threaded perf report support, but also lots of other work -
        and fixes and other improvements.  See (much) more details in the
        shortlog and in the git log"
      
      * 'perf-core-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (305 commits)

        perf tools: Ensure thread-stack is flushed
        perf top: Allow disabling/enabling events dynamicly
        perf evlist: Add toggle_enable() method
        perf trace: Fix race condition at the end of started workloads

       "The main changes are:
      
         - 'qspinlock' support, enabled on x86: queued spinlocks - these are
           now the spinlock variant used by x86 as they outperform ticket
           spinlocks in every category.  (Waiman Long)
      
         - 'pvqspinlock' support on x86: paravirtualized variant of queued
           spinlocks.  (Waiman Long, Peter Zijlstra)
      
         - 'qrwlock' support, enabled on x86: queued rwlocks.  Similar to
           queued spinlocks, they are now the variant used by x86:
      
             CONFIG_ARCH_USE_QUEUED_SPINLOCKS=y

      Pull RCU updates from Ingo Molnar:
      
       - Continued initialization/Kconfig updates: hide most Kconfig options
         from unsuspecting users.
      
         There's now a single high level configuration option:
      
              *
              * RCU Subsystem
              *
              Make expert-level adjustments to RCU configuration (RCU_EXPERT) [N/y/?] (NEW)
      
         Which if answered in the negative, leaves us with a single
         interactive configuration option:
      
              Offload RCU callback processing from boot-selected CPUs (RCU_NOCB_CPU) [N/y/?] (NEW)
      
         All the rest of the RCU options are configured automatically.  Later
         on we'll remove this single leftover configuration option as well.
      
       - Remove all uses of RCU-protected array indexes: replace the
         rcu_[access|dereference]_index_check() APIs with READ_ONCE() and
         rcu_lockdep_assert()
      
       - RCU CPU-hotplug cleanups
      
       - Updates to Tiny RCU: a race fix and further code shrinkage.
      
       - RCU torture-testing updates: fixes, speedups, cleanups and
         documentation updates.
      
       - Miscellaneous fixes
      
       - Documentation updates

      Pull vfs updates from Al Viro:
       "In this pile: pathname resolution rewrite.
      
         - recursion in link_path_walk() is gone.
      
         - nesting limits on symlinks are gone (the only limit remaining is
           that the total amount of symlinks is no more than 40, no matter how
           nested).
      
         - "fast" (inline) symlinks are handled without leaving rcuwalk mode.
      
         - stack footprint (independent of the nesting) is below kilobyte now,
           about on par with what it used to be with one level of nested
           symlinks and ~2.8 times lower than it used to be in the worst case.
      
         - struct nameidata is entirely private to fs/namei.c now (not even
           opaque pointers are being passed around).
      
         - ->follow_link() and ->put_link() calling conventions had been
           changed; all in-tree filesystems converted, out-of-tree should be
           able to follow reasonably easily.
      
           For out-of-tree conversions, see Documentation/filesystems/porting
           for details (and in-tree filesystems for examples of conversion).
