Alan Cox: Linux 2.4.20-pre2-ac4

Aug 19, 2002, 01:24 (0 Talkback[s])

Kernel.org Mirrors

 [+ indicates stuff that went to Marcelo, o stuff that has not,
 * indicates stuff that is merged in mainstream now, X stuff that proved
   bad and was dropped out, - indicates stuff not relevant to the main tree]

The HP merge is now down to 3503 lines pending

Ok this is the next chunk of IDE merges. There is still a lot of cleaning
up to be done. You'll see that various stuff is now tagged FIXME. Its all
so far long standing stuff or ugly code things that were in the old
code too. The goal is to make the IDE code both really clean and really
correct. Nevertheless this is a lot of IDE code shuffling. Handle with
care treat as test for the moment. This -ac patch isnt recommended on
your critical database server 8)
