Updates to kdb v4.4-2.6.16-{common,i386,ia64}-1, moving to -2.  Mainly
to get more forceful with stuck cpus on IA64, where the "non-maskable"
interrupt is masked by local_irq_disable().

We finally get decent backtraces on stuck IA64 cpus.  It took a long
time to get there, KDB could not change until the base kernel could
cope with INIT and recover correctly.
