2.4 __setup and __initcall backported to 2.2.18

The 2.2.18 release is going to support __setup and __initcall macros in the
same way as the 2.4 kernels, which means that we can do without a whole lot
Therefore, as soon as 2.2.18 final is released, I'm intending to stop
supporting the old method of init calls.
If anyone wants to step up and volunteer to maintain them, because they
want to use kernels older then 2.2.18 (I can't see the init stuff being
backported to 2.0 just yet), then please make yourself known now.
Otherwise, the old init calls will get out of sync with the code. I won't
remove them immediately, but I _will_ do so when I first notice that they're
out of date.
