Linux 2.5.1-dj9

Author: JT Smith

Dave Jones: "Resyncing with Linus has begun, and I've pushed him some of the
more simple stuff to begin with. Doing so has shaken up some bits
in my tree which were incorrect.

Seems quite a few people are using my tree to develop against.
For this reason I've wimped out and accepted some new bits in
this diff just to get those folks some extra testers."

Patch against 2.5.1 vanilla is available from:
http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/patches/2.5/patch-2.5.1-dj9.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,
