Alan Cox: Linux 2.4.21pre3-ac4

Jan 12, 2003, 22:06 (0 Talkback[s])

Kernel.org Mirrors

Various compile fixes, and the next stage of IDE updating. In particular
the PIIX driver has been subjected to a full review of Intel chipset
errata. I've also added the framework to fix the problems Ross Biro found
but not yet enabled its use. Once enabled that should fix a lot of the
problems with shared IRQ IDE. Handle with care as usual.
