No particular reason -- I just wanted the initial move to be as simple
as possible. Since it all gets built into raid6_pq.ko and we never see
these filenames even in module names, it does make sense to rename them.

The userspace test/ (neà raid6test/) directory doesn't build, but it
didn't before. At least I fixed the awk incantations.
