Kernel Upgrade

Patrick has just bumped several packages in latest batch of update, including the default kernel being used. It is currently using Linux Kernel 3.10.6 as the supported kernel. For detailed changes, please have a look on the ChangeLog or human-friendly ChangeLog from LWN

Beside the kernel, there are several changes as well, including upgraded dialog and recompiled seamonkey and seamonkey-solibs to remove --enable-shared-js configure parameter which broke the lightning extension. dhcpcd is also rebuilt to not run the wpa_supplicant hook since it will be taken care by wicd, NetworkManager, or rc.inet1.

Pat is also upgrading the flashplayer-plugins on the extra/ directory along with the linux kernel source for non-SMP machine.
