Hardy git repo

I've started the hardy git repo on kernel.ubuntu.com. Its pretty crufty 
yet, e.g., I've only built and booted 'generic'. Until someone on the 
kernel team starts a hardy l-u-m package, every device in the kernel has 
been enabled (sound, wireless, etc). The configs for _all_ of the other 
flavours are from gutsy and need updating. Those of you using devices 
that require firmware, don't forget to create /lib/firmware/`uname -r` 
and copy the appropriate files. That issue will go away (for l-u-m 
supported devices) when l-u-m is created. Note that there are likely to 
be build issues. Generic has been built thusly:

debian/rules binary-debs flavours="generic"

I'll be going through the gutsy kernel to identify and port the Ubuntu 
'special sauce' patches over the next couple of weeks (wiki page listing 
these patches to be announced). Other then that, I don't expect hardy to 
diverge significantly from upstream. I'll rebase against 2.6.24 roughly 
every -rc release, though perhaps more often if I encounter issues that 
require it (yes I realize the pain this causes the patch based 
flavours). The current plan is to stabilize on the 2.6.24 kernel.

Helpful reminders:


git clone git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-hardy.git
