Kernel Fixes

The following patches correct minor problems in the kernel.  Most of them fix issues related to the interaction between the different kernel configuration options.

Each patch applies to kernel version indicated.  If you require a patch for a different kernel, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

The Distro column indicates whether it applies against the standard IBM streams (Vanilla+) or a SLES8 installation.  A date in this column indicates when the patch was included in the distribution.
