Arch 2.6 kernels move to the -as patchset

To help plug the various bugs and vulnerabilities that have recently been cropping up in the 2.6 kernels, we've decided to try out the new -as patchset by Andres Salomon. As he wrote on the lkml, this patchset will fix the "obvious" bugs and vulnerabilities in the mainline kernel, in an effort to provide a solid base kernel for distributions to use.

This patchset does not add any new features or drivers -- it is just a comprehensive collection of fixes that should be included in the vanilla kernel anyway.

Report any problems or concerns to Mr. Bugtracker.
