Dave Jones: Linux 2.5.22-dj1

Jun 18, 2002, 21:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Kernel.org Mirrors

Resync with mainline, and get most of the big bits out of the patch queue.
Quite a large amount of changes, so I've held back the remainder of
those in the queue until next time.

As usual,..

Patch against 2.5.22 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.
