Long article names and subpages

While I agree that article names should be descriptive, long article names seriously harm the readability of subpage names.

Advanced Linux Sound Architecture/Example Configurations vs. ALSA/Example Configurations
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface/Hardware vs. UEFI/Hardware
Apache HTTP Server/ASP.NET vs. Apache/ASP.NET

I therefore propose that we rename the respective articles to ALSA, UEFI and Apache.

The long names would redirect to the short names. While naming Apache HTTP Server "Apache" is a bit misleading the latter currently redirects to the former anyway.
