The second pre-patch for kernel 2.4.2. A little late, but posted anyway.
As always, this is software in beta stage, so only use it if you think it’s really useful, and it’s not for beginners. Moreover, the kernel is of course for all Linux platforms, not just i386.
Here’s the complete changelog:
driver sync up with Alan
Andrew Morton: wakeup cleanup and race fix
Paul Mackerras: macintosh driver updates.
don’t trust “page_count()” on reserved pages!
Russell King: fix serious IDE multimode write bug!
me, Jens, others: fix elevator problem
ARM, MIPS and Cris architecture updates
alpha updates: better page clear/copy, avoid kernel lock in execve
USB and firewire updates
