SubjectLinux 2.6.24-rc6

The most noticeable part here (both to users and in the diffstat) should
be the libata-acpi fixes by Tejun Heo, which should hopefully take care of
all of the regressions that were caused by teaching SATA about doing the
proper ACPI stuff at bootup/suspend/resume/shutdown.

Other changes visible in the diffstat are a couple of new watchdog drivers
and the removal of the old tipar driver, and some Korean translations of
the kernel docs. And some V4L videobuf changes.

Other than that, it's pretty much a lot of small fixes (maybe not
one-liners, but we're talking "a few lines"). Networking, USB, scsi,
wireless, infiniband, IDE... With some alpha, ia64 and x86 arch updates.

The regression list keeps shrinking, so we're still on track for a full
2.6.24 release in early January. Assuming we don't all overeat during the
holidays and nobody gets any work done. But we all know that the holidays
are really the time when we get away from the boring "real work", and can
spend 24/7 on kernel hacking instead, right?

Here's to a merry christmas, doing the whole druidic festival around the
tree thing,
