    Pull scheduler updates from Ingo Molnar:
     "The main changes in this cycle were:
    
       - Add the SYSTEM_SCHEDULING bootup state to move various scheduler
         debug checks earlier into the bootup. This turns silent and
         sporadically deadly bugs into nice, deterministic splats. Fix some
         of the splats that triggered. (Thomas Gleixner)
    
       - A round of restructuring and refactoring of the load-balancing and
         topology code (Peter Zijlstra)
    
       - Another round of consolidating ~20 of incremental scheduler code
         history: this time in terms of wait-queue nomenclature. (I didn't
         get much feedback on these renaming patches, and we can still
         easily change any names I might have misplaced, so if anyone hates
         a new name, please holler and I'll fix it.) (Ingo Molnar)
    
       - sched/numa improvements, fixes and updates (Rik van Riel)
    
       - Another round of x86/tsc scheduler clock code improvements, in hope
         of making it more robust (Peter Zijlstra)
    
       - Improve NOHZ behavior (Frederic Weisbecker)
    
       - Deadline scheduler improvements and fixes (Luca Abeni, Daniel
         Bristot de Oliveira)
    
       - Simplify and optimize the topology setup code (Lauro Ramos
         Venancio)
    
       - Debloat and decouple scheduler code some more (Nicolas Pitre)
    
       - Simplify code by making better use of llist primitives (Byungchul
         Park)
    
       - ... plus other fixes and improvements"
