Alan Cox: Linux 2.4.20-pre7-ac1

Sep 18, 2002, 18:14 (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]

**      You can now load ide pci drivers at boot time or as modules.
**      Don't try unloading the modules yet. Don't load them on an active
**      device yet either.
**
**      My merge queue is currently 129 items long so there is a fair
**      bit pending for pre7-ac2
**

Linux 2.4.20-pre7-ac1
-       Merge 2.4.20pre6
        -       Discard nasty list_t disease patch
        -       Discard mac fb bug add
-       Merge 2.4.20pre7
        -       Dropped ide-sibyte. The mips people need to move
                this and their ide.h changes to the new IDE layer.
