Ok, in order to get this started I merged the above patches
into net-2.6.24

I'm exhausted and done for today. :-)

We can work on the other bits next.  Note that patches like the
"Create tcp_sacktag_foo" ones are just mechanical transformations
and thus if the conflicts are huge they can just be reimplemented
by hand.

Yes, such patch hand editing techniques can help in these cases.
