[SRM] kernel updates for oldstable

As previously noted[1], a 2.6 kernel security update is pending for
sarge that changes the ABI. This update has now been NEW-processed,
and a DSA should be released soon. I've spoken with Frans, and the
plan is to do a spin of d-i ASAP as oldstable installs are
currently rather broken. This respin would also include this ABI

Since we're spinning d-i anyway, I thought I'd see if we could get
some other non-security changes in there anyway. We've had some stuff
queued for way too long (since before sarge released even). I
re-examined each of the issues yesterday, and ended up with the
following changes, most of which are things Horms had queued for a
stable update (though I did drop 3 changes that I felt were of less
than important severity), and a few that we've identified since.

I have started builds across all of the architectures - I think the
final one will complete tomorrow morning. If there are no objections
to any of the proposed changes (or requests for an extended review
cycle), I'll plan to upload tomorrow evening after some testing.

kernel-source-2.6.8 (2.6.8-17) oldstable; urgency=high

  [ Simon Horman ]
  * drivers-net-via-rhine-wol-oops.dpatch (removed):
    This patch breaks the via-rhine driver and 2.6.8 and is
    completely bogus for this version of the kernel
    (closes: #311357)

  * drivers-media-vidio-bttv-vc100xp-detect.dpatch
    Allow Leadtek WinFast VC100 XP cards to work.

  * fs-jbd-checkpoint-assertion.dpatch
    Fix possible false assertion failure in log_do_checkpoint(). We might fail
    to detect that we actually made a progress when cleaning up the checkpoint
    lists if we don't retry after writing something to disk.

  * mm-rmap-out-of-bounds-pte.dpatch
    Stop try_to_unmap_cluster() passing out-of-bounds pte to pte_unmap()

  * net-ipv4-netfilter-ip_queue-deadlock.dpatch
    Fix deadlock with ip_queue and tcp local input path.

  * asm-i386-mem-clobber.dpatch:
    Make sure gcc doesn't reorder memory accesses in strncmp and friends on

  * drivers-acpi-pci_irq-elcr.dpatch:
    Make sure we call acpi_register_gsi() even for default PCI interrupt
    assignment. That's the part that keeps track of the ELCR register, and we
    want to make sure that the PCI interrupts are properly marked level/low.
