grrr! i discovered my previously attached patch included spaces instead of
tabs (must have copied the output of diff from a terminal instead of
redirecting to a file) when i tried to patch the recent 3.0.60 release and it
horribly failed (the kernel source uses tabs, not spaces, for indentation so
patch couldn't find the corresponding lines with spaces).

so attached is essentially the same patch, but:
 * references correct form of whitespace (tabs not spaces)
 * for 3.0.60 (instead of 3.0.59)
 * includes the appropriate fix-up for Makefile (ie EXTRAVERSION)

i've tested applying the patch (so this time i'm sure it applies unlike last
time), but i'm currently building the kernel, so no compilation or run-time
testing done.
