SubjectLinux 2.6.10-ac9
Arjan van de Ven is now building RPMS of the kernel and those can be found
in the RPM subdirectory and should be yum-able. Expect the RPMS to lag the
diff a little as the RPM builds and tests do take time.

Key: o - only in -ac
* - already fixed upstream
X - discarded later as wrong
+ - ac specific (fix not relevant to non -ac)

* 2.6.10 variant of the stack race fix (Alan Cox)
| Found by Paul Staretz
* Stronger ELF validity checks (Solar Designer)
* Add ATI SATA identifiers (Frederick Li)
o Update ATI PATA/SATA support (Frederick Li)
