Catching up to 2.6.24

The first 2.6.24 prepatch is out, signaling the closing of the merge window. So I have gone and tweaked things all over the Weather Forecast pages to match the new reality. The summary on the main page now shows the highlights of 2.6.24, and various other entries have been changed to reflect what happened during the merge window. In particular I quietly changed the predicted merge dates for all the stuff which I thought would get into this kernel, but didn’t. Unless you go to the Wayback Machine, you’ll never know I was wrong.

I also added entries for the controller area network code (to the networking page), Atheros wireless chipsets, and a note (on the user-space page) that glibc will go to GPLv3 sometime soon.
