Howdy Alpha hackers!

Thoughts of 1.3.40:

1) Keyboard init really works ok now.

2) Compiles the kernel faster (well all +38 kernels should be faster,
but I havent timed them..)
system: Noname 233Mhz,16MB,slow scsidisks,milo 1.3.31(from blade 0.3)
#1 1.3.35 compiling 1.3.40
#2 1.3.40 compiling 1.3.40

'time make'
#1 1244.934u 523.268s 31:16.52 94.2% 0+0k 0+0io 62070pf+1222w
#2 1307.394u 131.208s 25:30.49 93.9% 0+0k 0+0io 60691pf+700w

3) .40 doesnt compile right of the box for me..
RedHat/Alpha system(including gcc), except 'as' from David MT, and the
rest of binutils from Blade-0.2. Simple patch that makes .40 compile
clean here. I have no idea what this breaks though...
