SubjectLinux 2.5.64

Hmm.. Stuff all over, and a lot of spelling fixes. But there's a fair
number of "real" things here too, merges with Andrew, Dave etc.

As already reported on linux-kernel, this should fix the htree problems
(apart from some potential NFS export issues, apparently), and it also has
the nicer hash chain code from Andi (no actual changes in the hash
algorithms themselves, just the list changes).

Sparc, USB, networking updates.

Ans as I've been a bit snowed under by a lot of email, if you sent me
stuff and it isn't here, double-check and re-send (but even better, try to
see if you can find one of my "merge points" and check with them too)
