SubjectIrDA patches for 2.6.X, resend

I've just downloaded and tested 2.6.0-test3, and I was
surprised to see that the IrDA patches I sent you are included. That's
incredibly fast ;-)
Unfortunately, it seems that 3 patches were lost in the
process. One of them did no longer apply to -test3 (my fault), so I
rediffed it. All tested on -test3.

Thanks !



[FEATURE] : Add a new feature to the IrDA stack
[CORRECT] : Fix to have the correct/expected behaviour
[CRITICA] : Fix potential kernel crash

ir260_ircomm_owner.diff :
<Patch from Andrey Borzenkov>
o [CORRECT] Update module refcount in IrCOMM module

ir260_nsc_39x_fixes.diff :
<Patch from Jan Frey>
o [CORRECT] Make NSC 3839x probe and init *really* work
The new 3839x code was totally broken.
Won't affect code for 38108/38338 chips.

ir2603_vlsi-05.diff :
<Patch from Martin Diehl>
* correct endianess conversion of hardware exposed fields
* we need to check crc16 of rx frames in SIR-mode
(hardware does this in MIR/FIR modes). Use irda_calc_crc16.
* get rid of BUG'gers - having them in interrupt path isn't fun.
* don't return NET_XMIT_DROP when we drop (dev_kfree_skb_any)
frames. This value is meant to ask for retransmit so we would
corrupt the skb slab.
* locking review, corrections and improvements: particularly focus
on speed setting and start_xmit paths, but also reducing time
we are staying with interrupts disabled.
* printk-cleanup: less/better syslog msgs, use IRDA_DEBUG and friends.
* default qos_mtt_bits should be 1ms or longer (0x07), not exactly 1ms
* few minor improvements
* compatibility stuff to preserve 2.4 backport path
* it's a pci controller, so we should depend on CONFIG_PCI
