Hello, Linus.

percpu memory changes for v4.9-rc1.

* Nick improved generic implementations of percpu operations which
  modify the variable and return so that they calculate the physical
  address only once.

* percpu_ref percpu <-> atomic mode switching improvements.  The
  patchset was originally posted about a year ago but fell through the
  crack.

* Misc non-critical fixes.

Thanks.
