Software update: Linux kernel 2.4.1-pre12

Unfortunately, contrary to previous messages, no 2.4.1 final release yet, but already a pre-patch! See also this update. As always, a kernel update applies to all platforms, not just i386.

And again a warning: these kinds of patches are in the alpha stage of development and are therefore (sometimes) not stable. Only something for advanced users and other daredevils . And of course the changelog:

Get non-cpuid Cyrix probing right (it’s not a NexGen)

Jens Axboe: cdrom tray status and queing cleanups

AGP GART: don’t disable VIA, and allow i815 with external AGP

Coda: use iget4() in order to have big inode numbers without clashes.

Fix UDF writepage() page locking

NIIBE Yutaka: SuperH Update

Martin Diehl and others: SiS pirq routing fixes

Andy Grover: ACPI update

Andrea Arkangeli: LVM update

Ingo Molnar: RAID cleanups

David Miller: sparc and networking updates

Make NFS really be able to handle large files
