The following tree has fixes for vhost-net for 2.6.39.
These are easier to apply on top of Jason's and Krishna's
cleanups, and they got tested this way, so I thought it's
better for everyone to include that, and the trivial
copy_from_user optimization.

But if you think it's too late for that, pls let me know
and I'll try to untangle that dependency.


The following changes since commit 1fc050a13473348f5c439de2bb41c8e92dba5588:

  ipv4: Cache source address in nexthop entries. (2011-03-07 20:54:48 -0800)
