Hi guys,
everything is prepared and committed to linux/trunk.

- Rename the package kernel26 -> linux
- Added replaces everywhere
- Removed old comments and vercmps from .install file
- Removed old comments and replaces from PKGBUILD
- added compatibility symlinks for vmlinuz26 and initramfs filenames
  in PKGBUILD, in order to not break bootloader entries.

Now stuff to discuss before uploading to testing:
- kernel name: vmlinuz-linux or vmlinuz-ARCH
- initramfs name: initramfs-linux.img or initramfs-ARCH.img
  same for fallback of course.
- naming it $pkgname (which would be linux, would make it easier for
  custom kernel building imho)

anything else I missed, shout out now :)
