Dave Jones: Linux 2.5.18-dj1

Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Resync against 2.5.18, and go through the pending patches folder.
Mostly compilation fixes, but a handful of useful bits too.
A lot of the pending stuff doesn't apply any more, so it may
take a while for me to get around to applying. (ie, resending
resynced versions of patches you sent me may be quicker)

As usual,..

Patch against 2.5.18 vanilla is available from:

Merged patch archive: http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/patches/merged/

Check http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/Linux-2.5.html before reporting
known bugs that are also in mainline.
