Another upstream release, I want to move directly after signoff.
Last minute changes:
- Changed number of maximum serial ports to 32

Working fine on x86_64, i686 will be ready soon.
Signoff x86_64. Using nouveau on my desktop and new 6.12.4 ati driver on my laptop.
Radeon state: With new xf86-video-ati 6.12.4 driver simply add "radeon" to the modules array in mkinitcpio.conf and recreate the initrd. That's all for kms.
The bad: With kms enabled this way I don't get hardware 3d acceleration. But I never had any before with old DRI(1) with my X200m (R300 family).
The good: I get 3d acceleration for the 1st time with my card using DRI2 when I boot my 2nd kernel menu entry that has radeon.modeset=0 appended.
So !kms=3d or kms=like before for me. Still better to have that choice than no kms and no option to get 3d like before.
I like it. Probably we can get 3d also working soon together kms. I just need some time to read around.
