SubjectLinux v2.6.16-rc5

The tar-ball is being uploaded right now, and everything else should
already be pushed out. Mirroring might take a while, of course.

There's not much to say about this: people have been pretty good, and it's
just a random collection of fixes in various random areas. The shortlog is
actually pretty short, and it really describes the updates better than
anything else.

Have I missed anything? Holler. And please keep reminding about any
regressions since 2.6.15.
