Changelog extract

* Increase maximum symbols in map from 10,000 to 100,000.
* Add __archdata section on architectures that need arch
specific data in loaded modules (IA64 is first).
* Ignore unresolved references if there are no relocation
entries for them. Some versions of gcc generate spurious
unresolved externals which are not actually used.
* Update modules.conf man page by John Levon.
* Simplify path list, defaults are almost all [toplevel] only.
* Add prune command to modules.conf man page.

The change to simplify the path list should give the same behaviour as
the previous messy list of directories, for kernel and pcmcia files
This change means that modutils now scans *all* directories under
/lib/modules/<version> by default. If you have other directories under
LMV (e.g. LMV/vmware) those directories are now scanned automatically.
Let me know ASAP if this change causes any problems.

Third party modules whose source is compiled separately from the kernel
source tree should install into their own directory under LMV, they
should not pollute the LMV/kernel directory. Kernel builds from
2.4.0-test6 onwards remove all of LMV/kernel during modules install, to
ensure that the kernel directory contains no old modules. So anything
that pollutes LMV/kernel will be lost during kernel install.
