The most noticeable part here (both to users and in the diffstat) should
be the libata-acpi fixes by Tejun Heo, which should hopefully take care of

one-liners, but we're talking "a few lines"). Networking, USB, scsi,
wireless, infiniband, IDE... With some alpha, ia64 and x86 arch updates.

The regression list keeps shrinking, so we're still on track for a full
2.6.24 release in early January. Assuming we don't all overeat during the
holidays and nobody gets any work done. But we all know that the holidays
are really the time when we get away from the boring "real work", and can
