Kernel Upgrades on Ubuntu and Debian

     I upgraded the Ubuntu kernel to 3.16.32-lowlatency and Debian to 3.19.3 built from source with pre-emptive kernel option.  I also somewhat cleaned up the start-up scripts on Debian.

     This fixed a stuttering video problem on Ubuntu when viewing a Youtube video via Firefox over X2Go.

     On Debian, it significantly reduced the time for the Maté desktop to come up.

     Let me know if I broke anything in the process.

     One thing I did learn of interest, a current 3.19.3 NFS version 4 client will interoperate properly with a 2.6.26 NFS version 4 server if the current nfs-utils are installed and everything is configured properly.
