May 17, 2002, 05:26 (0 Talkback[s])

Kernel.org Mirrors'

Grab some of the more fun bits from Linus' public bk tree, and
merge in another boatload of patches that turned up elsewhere.
Quite a large set of changes, so tread carefully.

As usual,..

Patch against 2.5.15 vanilla is available from:
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/davej/patches/2.5/

Merged patch archive: http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/patches/merged/

Check http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/Linux-2.5.html before reporting
known bugs that are also in mainline.
