[Aboriginal] Working on next release.

Since the 3.7 kernel dropped monday evening I've been banging away at  
it. Updating arm patches, perl removal patches, and so on.

They've got a special init data section that drives gcc 4.2 nuts (build  
break due to section mismatch), which they've got a config symbol for  
but only parisc is using it. I'd like to try to figure out how to patch  
the toolchain I'm using to deal with this, but for right now I've just  
made that config symbol default to Y. (Downloaded the git repo thinking  
I could bisect it and see what they did to fix it, but there are no  
labels for releases anywhere in the tree, nor comments about releases  
in the commits. It's converted from svn, I think? Ginormous mess, and  
building it requires mpfr and such... Not something I'm likely to deal  
with today.)

I vaguely plan to post the updated perl removal patches to linux-kernel  
once I've done a bit more testing. I also need to cut a toybox release  
because I'm testing with the current hg snapshot of toybox.

The plan is still to switch to musl, but the kernel release happened  
before I was ready and I don't want to fall behind again.
