CeroWrt RC6 (beta 2) ready for testing.

CeroWrt 1.0-RC6 (beta 2) is now available. It now runs Linux 3.0.4,
ISC-Bind 9.8.1, babel 1.2, and has a preliminary minimum defaults for
many bufferbloat related issues. Performance testing has begun - and
shows that some of those defaults need to be changed. Please help!

CeroWrt is a build of the OpenWrt routing platform intended for use by
individuals, network engineers, researchers, teachers, and students
interested in advancing the state of the art on the Internet, and in
particular, those investigating the problems of latency under load,
bufferbloat, wireless-n, and the inter-relationships between various TCP
& QoS algorithms. CeroWrt is aimed at (currently) a single hardware
platform for which fully open drivers are available: the Netgear
WNDR3700v2, a current 802.11abgn router using the Atheros AR7161 rev 2
with gigabit Ethernet ports.

Our great thanks to Felix Fietkau and Andrew McGregor for their work on
the ath9k driver to greatly improve 802.11n aggregation behaviour (which
also reduces required buffering in the driver by about a factor of three).
