-stable: Linux 2.6.16.3/2.6.16.4

Linux 2.6.16.3

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.16.3
kernel.

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I’ll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch
between 2.6.16.2 and 2.6.16.3, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.16.y git tree can be found at:
      rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.16.y.git

and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
      www.kernel.org/git/

thanks,
