New Kernels, Lots of Upgraded Packages

After a silent period for almost two weeks, finally Slackware-Current is now rolling again with another kernel bump and many other changes.

The default kernel stock is now upgraded to the latest stable release, Linux Kernel 3.9.7. Several other applications which has just released also got included as well, such as e2fsprogs, alsa-utils, kscreen and libkscreen, pcre, OpenSSH, mesa, and lots of xorg related packages.

I'm hoping more packages will get included soon, such as GIMP 2.8.6, Curl 7.31.0, freetype, and probably php 5.5.0 (this has low chance and i guess it's kinda late for this release).
