Enhancements

Compilation option for modules

Modules were not compiled using -fPIC, which was a no-no on glibc-2.1. Various rules files were changed. If you develop independent module using the linuxconf-devel package, you simply have to modify your Makefile and define the OBJS macro with .os files instead of .o. This new extension means Object Shared.

Some more stuff in the status module

More files in /proc are visible with this module

Various spell checks

Various corrections to the English text.
