Linux 2.5.1-dj8

Author: JT Smith

Dave Jones: "Mixed bag of goodies this time."

Patch against 2.5.1 vanilla is available from:
http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/patches/2.5/patch-2.5.1-dj8.diff.bz2

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.

Enjoy,
