Changes since 2.5.62
* Merge -osdl and -dcl into one tree
Seperate trees were temporary till NUMA and hi-res timers
got merged to the base kernel.

+ Update to LKCD
Now includes latest memory and kexec hook.

+ Add CFQ and AS scheduler from -mm tree
Can choose scheduler via the kernel boot commandline:
elevator=deadline (default)
The anticipatory scheduler is experimental and may not boot
on some systems.

- Take out kprobe
No test available or interface available other than the
simple /dev/noisy
