Thanks. I see the commits didn't delete the old version of each of the two kernel patches. Was this intentional?

Thanks for the feedback. I haven't explored enough to be completely certain but I've seen comments that suggest that it's to do with high DMA alignment requirements. I'll finish exploring and add an explanation before I attempt to upstream it.

Both patches were applied and pushed. The kmalloc_caches patch may not be upstreamable without an explanation as to why the indicies are in disagreement if it only seems to affect
the MIPS architecture.

A second attempt at updating these patches. Both have been re-tested after
'make sync-all' and 'make clean' and are attached instead of inline. Apologies
for the confusion on the first attempt. Hopefully this will be more successful.
Both patches should be applied to the LLVMLinux tree. This will create/remove
the appropriate Linux kernel patches.

[mips] Replace named register fix with an upstreamable version.
Replace WIP slab allocator patch with an upstreamable version.
