Rather than go through a boring list of name changes, suffice it to
say that in the end we have a bunch of pairs of functions:

device_resume_noirq dpm_resume_noirq
device_resume dpm_resume
device_complete dpm_complete
device_suspend_noirq dpm_suspend_noirq
device_suspend dpm_suspend
device_prepare dpm_prepare

in which device_X does the X operation on a single device and dpm_X
invokes device_X for all devices in the dpm_list.

In addition, the old dpm_power_up and device_resume_noirq have been
combined into a single function (dpm_resume_noirq).

Lastly, dpm_suspend_start and dpm_resume_end are the renamed versions
of the former top-level device_suspend and device_resume routines.

slab,slub: don't enable interrupts during early boot

As explained by Benjamin Herrenschmidt:

  Oh and btw, your patch alone doesn't fix powerpc, because it's missing
  a whole bunch of GFP_KERNEL's in the arch code... You would have to
  grep the entire kernel for things that check slab_is_available() and
  even then you'll be missing some.

  For example, slab_is_available() didn't always exist, and so in the
  early days on powerpc, we used a mem_init_done global that is set form
  mem_init() (not perfect but works in practice). And we still have code
  using that to do the test.

Therefore, mask out __GFP_WAIT, __GFP_IO, and __GFP_FS in the slab allocators
in early boot code to avoid enabling interrupts.

lguest: avoid sending interrupts to Guest when no activity occurs.

If we track how many buffers we've used, we can tell whether we really
need to interrupt the Guest.  This happens as a side effect of
spurious notifications.

Spurious notifications happen because it can take a while before the
Host thread wakes up and sets the VRING_USED_F_NO_NOTIFY flag, and
meanwhile the Guest can more notifications.

A real fix would be to use wake counts, rather than a suppression
flag, but the practical difference is generally in the noise: the
interrupt is usually coalesced into a pending one anyway so we just

lguest: have example Launcher service all devices in separate threads

Currently lguest has three threads: the main Launcher thread, a Waker
thread, and a thread for the block device (because synchronous block
was simply too painful to bear).

The Waker selects() on all the input file descriptors (eg. stdin, net
devices, pipe to the block thread) and when one becomes readable it calls
into the kernel to kick the Launcher thread out into userspace, which
repeats the poll, services the device(s), and then tells the kernel to
release the Waker before re-entering the kernel to run the Guest.

Also, to make a slightly-decent network transmit routine, the Launcher
would suppress further network interrupts while it set a timer: that
signal handler would write to a pipe, which would rouse the Waker
which would prod the Launcher out of the kernel to check the network
device again.

Now we can convert all our virtqueues to separate threads: each one has
a separate eventfd for when the Guest pokes the device, and can trigger
interrupts in the Guest directly.

Note: The high latency on interrupt delivery had a very curious

faster than networking with GSO, since more interrupts were sent and
