SubjectLnux 2.6.24-rc5

It's been a week, and I promised to be a good boy and try to follow my
release rules, so here is the next -rc.

Things _have_ slowed down, although I'd obviously be lying if I said we've
got all the regressions handled and under control. They are being worked
on, and the list is shrinking, but at a guess, we're definitely not going
to have a final 2.6.24 out before xmas unless santa puts some more elves
to work on those regressions..

So any elves out there - please keep working.

I'm including the shortlog since it's small enough, and quite frankly,
gives about as readable explanation of the changes as can be imagined.
Nothing hugely exciting here.

I'd post the diffstat too, but it's not really all that interesting, and
it only highlights a textually big PA-RISC revert, and the powerpc
defconfig updates. And the Blackfin SPI driver. The rest is largely random
noise in various subsystems (drivers/net, xfs filesystem, and arch updates
are some of the areas that show more changes).
