Hi Neil,

Thanks for taking a look at this revision.

Before I submitted these patches, I actually had run checkpatch. I've included
my thought process below, along with the corresponding snippets of the
checkpatch output.

This keeps with the existing code conventions. The code block is:

extern const u8 raid6_gfmul[256][256] __attribute__((aligned(256)));
extern const u8 raid6_vgfmul[256][32] __attribute__((aligned(256)));
extern const u8 raid6_gfexp[256]      __attribute__((aligned(256)));
extern const u8 raid6_gfinv[256]      __attribute__((aligned(256)));
extern const u8 raid6_gfexi[256]      __attribute__((aligned(256)));

Again, these are following the conventions of the existing code such as:

printk("raid6: using algorithm %s (%ld MB/s)\n",

In fact, the last printk, about no memory available, was simply moved to a 
different line in my patch.

As you pointed out, these are both bogus.

This one slipped through the cracks. I've corrected it in the attached patches.

There were two reasons why I didn't use __aligned. The first being the
existing code conventions:

const char raid6_empty_zero_page[PAGE_SIZE] __attribute__((aligned(256)));

and also, by using __attribute__((aligned(size))), there isn't a need to add

#ifndef __KERNEL__
#define __aligned(x) __attribute__((aligned(x)))
#endif

to x86.h for the test program.

That being said, I've changed these two in the attached patches.

                          	     ^
These defines are plucked from arch/x86/include/asm/cpufeature.h.

In an perfect world, we'd just include that header, but it isn't visible from
userspace, so instead we copy the values.

Thus, to me, it makes sense to me to keep the symmetry here, but I can change
this if you want.
