kdb v1.8 has just been keeping track of Linus and -ac kernels. kdb
v1.9 flushes my folder of outstanding kdb patches. Thanks to everybody
who sent patches and apologies for the delay in including them.

There is also a kdb v1.8 patch against 2.4.10 in that directory, as
well as v1.8 patches for 2.4.9-ac. I will not be releasing kdb v1.9
against 2.4.9-ac or 2.4.9-ia64, I am waiting for -ac and -ia64 to sync
to 2.4.10. The XFS CVS tree is up to kernel 2.4.10 but is still using
kdb v1.8, I will update XFS to kdb v1.9 in two days time.

Changelog extract.
