Sorry about disappearing for a little while there. I turned in a
report to my adviser on my last patch set and completed my academic
requirements. I still want to get these patches committed though. I'll
make the changes this week that were suggested in the review comments
and respond to any questions that were asked of me. Also, I saw George
wanted to take on the load balancing decision making which is of
course fine by me.
