Subject: [PATCH 0/5] [GIT PULL] x86: Consolidate 32 and 64 bit thead_info (again)


Back in August 2011, I had a pull request to make the irq stack of
i386 more like the x86_64 code. There seemed to be acceptance back
then and you said you would even pull it after the merge window.
But due to your travels it was forgotten (and I forgot about it too).

I stumbled on these changes again and noticed that they were never
applied so I forward ported them with a few more adjustments.

Hopefully they are still worth pulling. This time I waited till after
the merge window to post :-)
