First of all, I'd like to thank Seiichi Nakashima for reporting
a few of these errors, and Jari Ruusu for reporting the problem with

remove the KERNELRELEASE-stuff completely.

This release is dedicated to all the innocent people of Afghanistan
that inevitably, and sadly, will suffer in the hunt for Usama Bin Ladin.
