kernels/speakup.i/*, bootdisks/speakup.i: Recompiled using the latest

Slackware 9.0-rc2 is released for testing.
bootdisks/: Regenerated bootdisks from new kernels.
rootdisks/install.*, isolinux/initrd.img: Modified /sbin/probe to handle
installing to a prepared software RAID array (type Linux RAID autodetect).
Thanks to Gaston Dassieu Blanchet for the patch.

extra/db-4.1.25/db4-4.1.25-i386-1.tgz: Added db-4.1.25.

That is such a relief, I have been poking and proding the internet looking for some type of gossip on when the new slackware will be released, and you are right, it shouldn't be long.
