Dave Jones: Linux 2.5.27-dj1

Jul 22, 2002, 14:59 (0 Talkback[s])

Kernel.org Mirrors

Mostly resyncing with the various trees that have sprouted in
the last week, and applying obvious stuff that didn't take much thinking.
Syncing with 4 new releases is no small feat, so this patchset is
mostly just a standing still release.
I'll start digging through the huge backlog of patches next time.

As usual,..

Patch against 2.5.27 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.
