Okay, version is up. This adds NFS support, but that requires
the packages mkinitcpio-nfs-utils, which I haven't created yet, and
maybe won't until tomorrow or so. Other than that, mkinitcpio should be
feature-complete and thus be considered "0.6-rc1".

I will send another message when mkinitcpio-nfs-utils (which is ipconfig
and nfsmount ported from klibc) is up so NFS support can be tested.
