Full Changelog

Big changes, lots of merges. A number of the merges are fairly
substantial too. 

Device mapper (LVM2), crypto/ipsec stuff for networking, epoll and giving
the new kernel configurator a chance. Big things.

And a _lot_ of maintenance, from various architecture updates to USB and
ISDN and ALSA. Merges with Andrew & Alan etc.. Go out and test, 



Summary of changes from v2.5.44 to v2.5.45

  o The following patch adds support for ethtool to the ewrk3 driver.
    It is against 2.5-BK but should apply to any recent 2.5 and 2.4 as
    well. In addition to adding ethtool support, it also removes the
    cli/sti fixup attribution from the changelog since that didn't
    actually go in yet and fixes a small style issue I introduced in
    the multi-card support patch.
  o This patch adds some locking fixups to the ewrk3 ioctl routine.
    None of these are critical since the ioctls AFAIK are used only by
    the EEPROM config utility.
  o Last ewrk3 update for now. Updates the changelog to cover previous
    patches, bumps the revision number, and replaces the horrific
    EthwrkSignature function with something (slightly) less horrific.
  o sd.c major number off-by-one
