Merge window closed: v2.6.19-rc1

Ok, it's two weeks since v2.6.18, and as a result I've cut a -rc1 release.

As usual for -rc1 with a lot of pending merges, it's a huge thing with
tons of changes, and in fact since 2.6.18 took longer than normal due to
me traveling (and others probably also being on vacations), it's possibly
even larger than usual.

I think we got updates to pretty much all of the active architectures,
we've got VM changes (dirty shared page tracking, for example), we've got
networking, drivers, you name it. Even the shortlog and the diffstats are
too big to make the kernel mailing list, but even just the summary says

4998 total commits
6535 files changed, 414890 insertions(+), 233881 deletions(-)

so please give it a good testing, and let's see if there are any

As usual, the best way to get some grip on a particular subsystem would
tend to be with some script like

git log --no-merges v2.6.18.. drivers/usb | git shortlog | less -S

which gives a more manageable overview of any particular area you're
interested in (in the example that would be 'drivers/usb', but you can
use this to browse any interesting area).
