SubjectLinux 2.6.11-rc4

Hi there everybody,
this is hopefully the last -rc kernel before the real 2.6.11, so please
give it a whirl, and complain loudly about anything broken.

As can be seen from the shortlog, most of the changes are pretty trivial.
I think the biggest change is the radeon updates, and some of the NLS
codepage things caused big diffs even if the changes themselves are pretty
trivial (oh, and moving the ia64 "shubio.h" file accounts for about seven
thousand lines of diffs, but no real changes ;)

In short: some driver updates, some arm/uml/sparc updates, and various
random (mostly) one-liners all over. The most noticeable of the one-liners
is hopefully that raid5/6 should work again.
