HAL work

Today I worked on HAL and commited some leftover patches and closed some bugs on fd.o for the next HAL version (v0.5.6) which we plan to release until 16.01.2006 to base on a actual release for SUSE 10.1 and SLES/NLD.

Now I need to finish my work on the Tablet PC addon (to automatically set ttyS* device for Wacom Tablets) for HAL to get this in this release.

With the first Beta of SUSE 10.1 the SUSE arch-team plan some performance tests with HAL on Itanium and S390 with some hundreds devices. This will become a interesting test and should point out the bottle necks of HAL.
