Ok, test6 is there now:
Changes in test6:
- speling fixces.
- fix drm/agp initialization issue
- saner modules installation
(*) NOTE! This may/will break some module setups. Files go in
different places. Better places.
- per-CPU irq count area. Better for caches, simpler code.
- "mem_map + MAP_NR(x)" => virt_to_page(x)
(*) Purely syntactic change at this point. NUMA memory handling
will take advantage of this during 2.5.x
- page_address() returns (void *) to make it clearer that it is a
virtual address (it's the reverse of "virt_to_page()", see above).
- zimage builds should work again.
- Make current gcc's able to compile the kernel.
- fix irq probing in IDE driver: this caused strange irq problems for
other drivers later on (notably PCMCIA, which is one of the few
drivers to still probe for ISA interrupts on modern machines).
- Intel microcode update update.
- mips/mips64/sh/sparc/sparc64/acorn updates
- DAC960 driver update
- floppy shouldn't scream on open/close
- console driver does correct palette setting. No more black screens
- ISDN updates
- PCI layer can assign resources from multiple IO and memory windows
- yenta_socket driver no longer oopsable on unload.
- flush_dcache_page() for more virtual dcache coherency issues
- ext2_get_block() races fixed
- jffs bugfixes galore.
- user resource tracking infrastructure re-organization.
- umsdos works again.
- loopback shouldn't deadlock
Tons of small stuff. Holler if there's something bad.
