    Updates to kdb v4.4-2.6.16-{common,i386,ia64}-1, moving to -2. Mainly
    to get more forceful with stuck cpus on IA64, where the "non-maskable"
    interrupt is masked by local_irq_disable().

    We finally get decent backtraces on stuck IA64 cpus. It took a long
    time to get there, KDB could not change until the base kernel could
    cope with INIT and recover correctly.
