SubjectLinux 2.5.71

I think I'll call this kernel the "sticky turtle", in honor of that
historic "greased weasel" kernel, and as a comment on how sadly dependent
I've become on the daily BK snapshots. It's been too long since 2.5.70.

I'll do better, I promise. While most developers happily use either the
daily snapshots or the BK tree itself, not everybody does, and a lot of
users want "real releases".

There's nothing hugely interesting here, but Al Viro ha sbeen cleaning up
the tty layer, and Stephen Hemminger has been fixing up some network
device alloc/free issues with the help of various people.

And obviously there are the normal usb/pcmcia/sound/architecture updates.
With driver models and networking thrown in as a bonus.

Bruce Fields:
o gss_marshal and gss_validate depend on gss_cred_get_ctx never
returning NULL; but gss_refresh depends on gss_cred_get_ctx
returning NULL whenever the cred is not up to date. So, I replaced
the single gss_cred_get_ctx by a gss_cred_get_ctx and a
o add handling of the new CTXPROBLEM and CREDPROBLEM RPCSEC_GSS
o Add a "protocol: udp/tcp" line so that gssd can use the same
protocol for null calls that was specified in the mount options.
o I believe we need to set a timeout before doing the sleep in
o allow gssd to communicate failure to initialize contexts back to
the kernel, so the kernel can return -EACCES when a user lacks
credentials, instead of just hanging until they kinit.
o This makes several changes to the gss upcalls
o Trivial; I kept forgetting what each of the xdr_netobj's passed to
the gss-api routine meant, so I thought I'd fool with the argument
names in an effort to make them more helpful.
o Trivial fix for a typo in fs/nfs/nfs4state.c
