Need testing for proposed final kernel candidate.

To avoid the normal cycle of waiting for the kernel to be completely
built by the archive buildd's, I'm asking folks to test this kernel from
a local build. Getting this tested extensively is urgent to keeping the
release schedule on-time.

There's a i386 and amd64 generic kernel there. The main thing to test is
that all of your IDE and libata driven disks (PATA/SATA) are still
operational, including your CDROM's. There should be no regressions from
the previous (-14.22) kernel.

Reports of success would be nice (to guage amount of testing). Reports
of regressions should include dmesg output from -14.22 and -14.23 (this
kernel) as well as "lspci -vvn". Do not file bug reports, send to
kernel-team at directly.
