Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.4.0-test12

Jan 30, 2001, 08:30 (11 Talkback[s])
Date: Mon, 29 Jan 2001 13:51:41 -0800 (PST)
From: Linus Torvalds torvalds@transmeta.com
To: Kernel Mailing List linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
Subject: 2.4.0-test12: SiS pirq handling..

Could people that had problems with SiS interrupt handling before please
give 2.4.0-test12 a final whirl before I release it as 2.4.1? We got a lot
of pirq tables from people, and Martin Diehl put them together with the
hardware specs to come up with what looks to be the "final and correct"
SiS pirq routing, but as always it would be good to have this verified by
as many people as possible.

The other changes in pre12 aren't likely to be all that noticeable, unless
you happen to be hit by just that detail.. As always, feedback is
appreciated.
