Dear distribution hackers,

I've now merged most of the "lost patches of OpenMoko's OpenEmbedded"
into the 2.6.24-rc7 tree, with the exception of a few that were
already applied, and the highly fix-gta01-flowcontrol2-
for which I've added a comment to

The patches merged are:

fix-EVIOCGRAB-semantics.patch	# heavily edited, please verify)
iis-suspend.patch		# minor whitespace changes)
gta02-sound.patch		# CONFIG_PM change wasn't in mainline yet)
s3c2410-usb-switch.patch	# with some changes, see bug P#876

For the future, please don't hide patches somewhere along the
distribution chain. The touch screen bug made us chase a supposed
hardware or kernel regression for a while, and the Glamo VRAM size
patch caused some confusion by appearing in some patches people
made on top of it, and then disappearing again.

Note: I didn't put these changes into the tree, since I
hope we'll be able to switch completely to 2.6.24 rather sooner than

Remaining 2.6.24 issues / to do:
- GTA01 probably still not working (didn't try, but none of the
  recent changes look as if they'd fix GTA01)
- need to rebase to rc8
- NAND hardware ECC is acting up in some cases, spewing out tons of
