I know I said -11.21 was the last upload for awhile, but the best laid
plans of mice and men...

Besides fixing a regression caused by "synchronise our linux-libc-dev
with the kernel userspace headers", I also pulled in the 2.6.27.10 patch
set. There is one interesting patch in that set that has flipped/flopped
a couple of times upstream: 'Revert "sched_clock: prevent scd->clock
from moving backwards"'.  Evidently this caused a hibernate regression,
so I'll be very interested to know if this changes hibernate behavior
for anyone.

Please note that I did not include "iwlagn: fix RX skb alignment" in the
2.6.27.10 patch set. It causes an ABI bump and is only applicable to
machines with page sizes > 4K. The reason I mention this is that
community ports crowd might want to cherry-pick it into their repository
as it might affect non-x86 arches.
