Linux 2.5.1-dj7

Author: JT Smith

Dave Jones: "More merging, some pending fixes for various drivers, and some small
experimental bits that could use a little more testing.
Manfreds changes for eg have been around for a while, and no-one has
screamed yet, so these either need more testing, or are perfect 8-)
Lets try and prove the latter.."
Patch against 2.5.1 vanilla is available from:

Some of the fixes still haven't found their way back to Marcelo yet
but should show up in a later 2.4.18pre with any luck.
