lin­ux­o­la­tor SoC work committed

I com­mit­ted most of Romans work in the lin­ux­o­la­tor to cur­rent. The new syscalls aren’t used until you run

sysctl com­pat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16

to switch back (after exit­ing all linux pro­grams) you just have to run

sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.4.2

But you have to do this on i386. Amd64 sup­port is not com­plete (and besides this, amd64 is still bro­ken and nobody pro­vided the nec­ces­sary debug­ging info to jhb@).

There are some known prob­lems with osrelease=2.6.16, e.g., prob­lems with futexes (vis­i­ble in acroread, realplay and skype), but some pro­grams already run with­out obvi­ous prob­lems (linux-firefox, linux-opera).

Any reports about new prob­lems to netchild@ and rdivacky@ please. Reviews, debug­ging info and patches are wel­come too.
