lmbench-2.0 release

lmbench-2.0 has finally been released. I ran out bugs to fix, so I decided to call version 2.0 done.

Work has been progressing on lmbench-3.0, and the first alpha releases should start hitting the net in the not-too-distant future... lmbench3.0 includes new benchmarks, such as par_mem which measures the available parallelism in the memory heirarchy, and new capabilities for measuring system scalability by running benchmark processes in parallel in a controlled fashion.
