SubjectLinux 2.6.19-rc6

there's nothing earth-shattering here (and there shouldn't be), but we've
hopefully made good progress on the regression list (and thanks again to
Adrian Bunk for reminding people, especially when they thought *cough*
that some particular regression had already been fixed)..

So with -rc6, we hopefully should leave the irq-related regressions behind
us. There were issues both with devices that started enabling MSI (which
seem to trigger hardware bugs, although there's also been discussion about
what we should do to make things safer) and with the new genirq layer that
showed problems with edge-triggered irq's (notably legacy ISA interrupts,
or, more commonly these days, the 16-bit PCMCIA interrupts that are
basically just ISA in another formfactor).

Thanks for everybody involved in whittling down that regression list.

Also, apart from the regression tracking, we've had some other updates, eg
infiniband and DVB fixes, network driver fixes, some networking fixes etc.

The ShortLog is appended, and gives a mostly readable picture of what has
been going on. But the main thing to take away is: regressions fixed, and
not a whole lot of changes since -rc5 (it may not look that way, but a lot
of these things are essentially one-liners or close to it, so the total
diff between -rc5 and -rc6 is actually just about 5k lines, which is not
a whole lot, considering).
