Lest people have nothing to compile this evening...

Ok time for the next update. Looking at the remaining bug reports can one
of the IDE guys send me a patch to disable the setting of multimode on boot,
I want to see if that is involved in some of the irq/serial latency problem
reports and also a couple of '2.1.x doesnt boot' reports where it seems the
IDE driver (or the disk quite possibly) is handing back wrong blocks.

Differences between 2.1.131ac3 and 2.1.131ac4

o AIC7xxx fix (indirectly Doug Ledford)
o ad1816 sound update (Thorsten Knabe)
o MAXMEM used is displayed if limited (Ingo)
o Missing/extra restore flag/cli stuff cleaned up (Oleg Drokin)
o Const cleanups for parport (Tim Waugh)
o Serial double setup crash fix (Ted Tso)
o Some netsyms changes for more compiles (Arjan/Me)
o Config.h fixes (Niels Jensen)
o tunelp location correction (Andrea Arcangeli)
o nbd mods to start getting md over nbd workable (Pavel)
o Some ide-scsi drivers do have LUN's - reverse the patch for that
pending a better way to spot multilun ide
o Alpha lock definiton fix when SMP=1
o NCR MCA motherboard NCR539C94 SCSI support (Tym)
