Updated patch against 2.6.11 follows. This one, like the original
patch, is run tested too.

This time I took no chances, esi/edi contents are
explicitly propagated from one asm() block to another.
I didn't do it before, not expecting that gcc can be
soooo incredibly clever. Sorry.

Christophe does this one look/compile ok?
