As the -stable patch review cycle is now over, I've released the kernel in the normal places. Due to some
disagreement over some of the patches in the review cycle, I've dropped
a number of them.

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between and, as it is small enough to do so.

And a personal thanks to OSU for letting me bore them by doing this in
their meeting.
