SubjectLinux v2.5.58

I'm still on my accelerated release schedule, trying to make slightly
smaller patches more frequently, instead of having humungous patches and
having people forced to either wait or use the BK trees.

HOWEVER, that's going to change. I'm actually leaving for a two-week
vacation on Friday, so not only will we have a lull in the merges due to
that (I probably won't be on the 'net at all, since I'm travelling with my
family), but I'll also have to slow down patches before leaving to try to
leave with a fairly stable kernel.

While I'm away, I'm sure the regular suspects are going to work on
merging stuff (Andrew & co), so it shouldn't be a big deal, but it still
helps to not have major quakes just before going away for a while.

The 2.5.58 stuff is largely a merge of a lot of smaller stuff (tons of
trivial patches, for example), with some bigger things: a parisc update,
IPMI driver, USB updates, sysfs updates, and RPCSEC_GSS support.
