Subject: [GIT PULL] SLUB fixes for 2.6.26

Hi Linus,

Please pull the latest SLAB git tree from:

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/penberg/slab-2.6.git for-linus

The tree has just one changeset that fixes SLUB boot-time warnings on MIPS as
reported by Yoichi Yuasa.

                Pekka
