  I tried the koji build - there were 4 warnings about missing
things (firmware) for drivers I was not using (aic9xxx, qlaxxx, mmm
forgoet what else) - i did add ati-firmware which I did find (even tho
im using nvidia).

  There was warning about nouveau during the rpm -i which I am using -
but I crossed my fingers and it seems to work.

  iwl4965 wifi is improved substantially (speed for N is once again
visible) - the last test is the warn slowpath bug which I am pretty sure
is fixed in this kernel too - it triggers when lots of packets go thru -
so I will run a backup which usually triggers the bug to see.

  So a few small tidy ups but so far working well for me (64 bit).
