glibc-2.3.90-26 and older kernels

Tomorrow's glibc 2.3.90-26 will require be the first one which will
require kernels 2.6.9 and higher.  The binaries won't run on any older
kernel.  The spec file should contain the necessary conflicts but I
thought I should point it out anyway.

So, people who want to boot into older kernel, do not update glibc.
Your system will be completly unusable.
