security bug fixes from kernel 2.6.29.6-217.2.16.fc11 (no additional security
fixes vs. latest stable Fedora 11 kernel.)    2.6.30.5-32 fixes these issues
from 2.6.30.5-28.rc2:  - Missing LIRC drivers and scsi_debug driver.  - Enables
PCI message signaled interrupts by default, which should fix some issues with
i915 video drivers.    2.6.30.5-43 fixes additional problems:  - Kernel panic on
boot caused by stackprotector.  - Failure to boot as a Xen guest.  - Floppy
driver loading unnecessarily. (#519099)  - Races in kthread code and clone
syscall.  - Xen: guest crash when trying to debug (#458385)  - b43 wireless
driver failing to load on iMac G5  - Hangs on older systems with Intel 440
chipsets.
