[arch-dev-public] [signoff] kernel26

Another upstream release, please sign off.

This also "fixes" the recent local root exploit, although (I like to 
repeat that), it was NOT exploitable on our kernel unless you 
explicitly ran "echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr". However, the .30.5 
kernel is safe from this exploit even if you run that command.

I only built x86_64 so far, will do i686 in a minute (takes forever to 
build though). And - with our recent mirror trouble - it might take a 
while to propagate through the tubes.
