Default Stock Kernel Upgraded to 3.10.14

Pat upgraded the default stock kernel in the future Slackware 14.1 release to the latest -stable kernel released by Greg today, 3.10.14. This update brings many improvements to radeon, HID, and many other aspects of the Linux kernel.

Other interesting thing is the inclusion of rsync-3.1.0 into -Current. I saw the changelog and it was huge changes, but nevertheless, Pat took it and include it on this batch of update. ca-certificates is also upgraded to the latest version from Debian's repository, bringing the latest digital certificates to Slackware 14.1. mc is now upgraded to 4.8.10 and gmp is upgraded to 5.1.3.
