Alan Cox: Linux 2.5.62-ac1

Kernel.org Mirrors


This has more IDE and PCI toys. Handle with care. This brings most of the
quirk handling from 2.4 into 2.5. The ALi Magick one requires the video4linux
stuff is fixed in 2.5 as well. I've not yet merged the 450NX patch to mtrr
(450NX mtrr write combining has errata)
