2.6.2[1-2].0, 2.6.2[1-6].N, and debuginfo packages for freed-ora

I started creating cleaned-up tarballs with the latest releases of
each kernel series, in addition to cleaned-up tarballs with the
initial releases in each series.  They're available at
http://fsfla.org/selibre/linux-libre/download/releases/, and they can
be easily located using the LATEST-* links, ending in .N and .0,

I'll probably go back a bit further, perhaps as far back as 2.6.1[56]
(I know a number of distros are still running those), and maybe even
2.4.21 and 2.4.9, mainly to be able to build free-centos kernels.

I've also started publishing the debuginfo RPMs corresponding to the
freed-ora kernels.  They're in a separate debuginfo repository, mainly
because of their size.  They're so big that mirrors might prefer to
skip them.
