More Kernel Configs

Pat decided to put more Kernel configs in /testing directory, so now there are 3 different configs, 2.6.35.12, 2.6.38.4, and 2.6.39-rc4. The reason why 2.6.35.12 is included is that because it's considered a long term kernel and many people that intends to use Slackware for server might prefer to use a long term kernel since it's supported by upstream developers. Pat also changed the configuration a little bit so that it's sync with newer config:
BLK_DEV_LOOP y -> m
FIREWIRE n -> m
HIGHMEM64G n -> y
HZ 1000 -> 100
MOUSE_PS2_ELANTECH n -> y
PHONET m -> n
PREEMPT_NONE n -> y
PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY y -> n
X86_PAE y
mpg123 and glib are upgraded to the latest stable version while aaa_elflibs is rebuilt since there's a new library in this update (glib).

Pat has given it's signal that the final date for 13.37 release is really close as the cave is closing soon and all adventurers should exit through main office now instead of back door (just kidding, there is no back door mentioned in Changelog) lmao
