This is mostly a resync patch. Most of the diffs from the earlier patches
would have applied to 2.2.3 without problems, but this one works better.

This hasn't been tested for application against Alan Cox's ac1 patch
yet. If the patch fails, I'll release a 2.2.3ac1-dj1 soon.


Differences between Linux 2.2.3-dj1 and 2.2.3

o   arch/i386/kernel/apm.c
    Removed two unused vars.

o   arch/sparc64/kernel/cpu.c
    Corrected typo "Unknow CPU"

o   drivers/char/nvram.c
    Removed leading space from hd0 type. 
    Added recognition for 2.88M 3.5" drive.

o   drivers/net/ne2k-pci.c
    Added support for DLink CT528 (http://www.dlink.com) This ugly is
    a clone of a RealTek 8029, which is a clone of an NE2k. Most
    bizarre. Even more bizarre, they used almost the same PCI info, so
    adding code to read the subsystem was necessary.

o   drivers/pci/quirks.c
    Added bridge optimisation for VIA VT82C597AT chipset. 
    Fullstops added to some strings that had them missing.
    I think it's now agreed that this feature will disappear in 2.3.x as
    this really belongs in userland. Until such a program is available
    however, I will continue to maintain this.

o   lib/vsprintf.c
    Now prints strings with '%%' in them as '%'.
    Should stop strange texts appearing in /var/log/messages.
