These are small patches that just expose kernel functionality so the 
AUFS modules will work. I will continue to monitor these as AUFS 
progresses and remove them if/when we can.

Apparently, I should also make them say more loudly in the PKGBUILD 
that they have to do with AUFS, since that was difficult to tell.

In general, +1 to James for the suggestion to make the kernel 
PKGBUILD more user friendly.
