CVE-2008-0001:  VFS in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22.16, and 2.6.23.x before
2.6.23.14, performs tests of access mode by using the flag variable instead of
the acc_mode variable, which might allow local users to bypass intended
permissions and remove directories.    Plus:  Major wireless driver updates.
Restored the /proc/slabinfo file.  Radeon R500 2D DRM support.  Enable the USB
IO-Warrior driver.  Additional bug fixes for the listed Bugzilla entries.
