Problem description

This update contains a couple of fixes, most notably it fixes a race
in the memory management code during page migration. Also an incorrect
value was returned by the IFWLOG netfilter.

The Transparent Huge Page has also been disabled by default since it's
known to cause very long latency (firefox can stall during several
minutes) during heavy IOs on storage devices.

The kernel packaging now has been changed to avoid kernel source
codeduplication. The source code is only contained in the kernel-source
package.

The devel package includes some missing files used by external
modules. This wasn't detected previously since the dkms system were
generating them (wrongly) but now the dkms system has been changed
to not modify the kernel source workspace.
