2.5.1-dj14

Author: JT Smith

Dave Jones: "Assorted merges, fixes, updates & work in progress.

Most of the remaining compilation errors are drivers in need
off bio work. There may be a handful of kdev_t fixes still
needed, but this seems mostly done."

Me being away for a week has meant that the backlog grew quite large,
and as such this has a large number of merges, tread carefully.

Patch against 2.5.1 vanilla is available from:
ftp://ftp.xx.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/davej/patches/2.5/
