Subject: [PATCH v2 net-next 0/9] tipc: more updates for the v3.8 content

Changes since v1:
	-get rid of essentially unused variable spotted by
	 Neil Horman (patch #2)

	-drop patch #3; defer it for 3.9 content, so Neil,
	 Jon and Ying can discuss its specifics at their
	 leisure while net-next is closed.  (It had no
	 direct dependencies to the rest of the series, and
	 was just an optimization)

	-fix indentation of accept() code directly in place
	 vs. forking it out to a separate function (was patch
	 #10, now patch #9).

Rebuilt and re-ran tests just to ensure nothing odd happened.

Original v1 text follows, updated pull information follows that.


Here is another batch of TIPC changes.  The most interesting
thing is probably the non-blocking socket connect - I'm told
there were several users looking forward to seeing this.

Also there were some resource limitation changes that had
the right intent back in 2005, but were now apparently causing
needless limitations to people's real use cases; those have
been relaxed/removed.

There is a lockdep splat fix, but no need for a stable backport,
since it is virtually impossible to trigger in mainline; you
have to essentially modify code to force the probabilities
in your favour to see it.

The rest can largely be categorized as general cleanup of things
seen in the process of getting the above changes done.

Tested between 64 and 32 bit nodes with the test suite.  I've
also compile tested all the individual commits on the chain.

I'd originally figured on this queue not being ready for 3.8, but
the extended stabilization window of 3.7 has changed that.  On
the other hand, this can still be 3.9 material, if that simply
works better for folks - no problem for me to defer it to 2013.
If anyone spots any problems then I'll definitely defer it,
rather than rush a last minute respin.
