Linux 2.5.3-dj5

Author: JT Smith

Dave Jones: "Back in sync with Linus, and another bunch of pending items.
Several janitor style patches also pending, which will go in -dj6.
Quite a bit of stuff from -dj went into pre4 & pre5, with more set
to appear in pre6. Network driver updates have also gone to Jeff,
(A few remaining bits to send), so in all, diffsize against 2.5.4 final
should hopefully shrink quite a bit."
Patch against 2.5.3 vanilla is available from:
