Oops, I had done a git-read-tree v2.6.17 when tracking down a bug
and forgot to revert to HEAD.

BTW, how about making WARN_ON/WARN_ON_ONCE always return the
condition? That would mean you could do

if (WARN_ON(blah)) {
	handle_impossible_case
}

Rather than

if (unlikely(blah)) {
	WARN_ON(1)
	handle_impossible_case
}

I checked all the newly added WARN_ON_ONCE users and none of them
test the return status so we can still change it.
