Ok, I released a real 2.4.10, let the fun begin..

This is an uncomfortably large changeset, largely because I was away in
Finland twice during the 2.4.9->2.4.10 development, and partly of course
because I've tried to aggressively sync up especially with Alan.

In addition to the VM changes that have gotten so much attention there are
architecture updates, various major filesystem updates (jffs2 and NTFS),
ACPI updates, and tons of driver merges. And, of course, the min()/max()

Give it hell,


 - Andrew Grover: ACPI update
 - Al Viro: block devices..
 - Andrea Arcangeli: fix list manipulation bogosity
 - Trond Myklebust: 64-bit file locking fixes
 - Brad Hards: USB CDC ethernet
 - Chris Mason: reiserfs speedup
 - Robert Love: re-merge AMD 761 GART support that was lost in -ac merge
 - Adam Richter: check pci_module_init() return value

 - Jan Harkes: make Coda work with arbitrary host filesystems, not
   just filesystems that use generic_file_read/write
 - Al Viro: block device cleanups
 - Hugh Dickins: swap device lock fixes - fix swap readahead race
 - me, Andrea: more reference bit cleanups
