[ANNOUNCE] 2.6.33-rt6

We are pleased to announce the next update to our new preempt-rt
series.

For those who wonder about -rt5. It's there as well, but the tag is
more or less a separation point.

Changes from -rt4 to -rt5:

8fafaf5: v2.6.33-rt5
f6e20d0: tracing: Define pid functions for all config combinations
4216e30: vga console: Remove the CON_ATOMIC flag
7033151: x86: Fix 32bit HIGHMEM=n compile
c28c2c8: x86: highmem: Remove stale function prototype
fb301a4: mm: highmem: Fix stale BUG_ON condition

Changes from -rt5 to -rt6:

af5d4b6: v2.6.33-rt6
1054085: Merge branch 'rt-2.6.33-queue' of git://dev.lemote.com/rt4ls into rt/2.6.33

This brings MIPS back into the -RT world!

Thanks to Wu Zhangjin !!

Note that the MIPS support is only tested on Loongson hardware so
your milage with other MIPS incarnations may vary.

Known issues for -rt6:

- load balancer induced latencies. Can be observed in extreme system
overload situations (load avg > 1000), so probably not a real
world issue, but still it shows a weak point.

- rcu stalls on overload situations caused by exit_io_context() RCU
read locked section which heavily contends on sleeping locks. Still
under investigation.
