Subject[PATCH 27/31] sched, numa, mm: Add credits for NUMA placement
From: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

The NUMA placement code has been rewritten several times, but
the basic ideas took a lot of work to develop. The people who
put in the work deserve credit for it. Thanks Andrea & Peter :)

[ The Documentation/scheduler/numa-problem.txt file should
probably be rewritten once we figure out the final details of
what the NUMA code needs to do, and why. ]
