Subject[PATCH] Updated Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt
  Hello,

this patch (against 2.5.59) updates Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt to
the (more-or-less; I certainly missed some parameters) current state of kernel.
Note also that I will probably send up another update after few further kernel
releases..

I hope the patch is ok, there should be no problems with it. Please apply.
