This is the patches I have in my pending/twiddled with pile at the moment.
I'll also send bits of this off to Linus

Whats different

o       Ramfs allows size limiting (very handy when fiddling with PDA's)
o       Knows the 'kgcc' convention for conectiva/mandrake/red hat
o       Build ACPI if you have ACPI but no interpreter
o       Tidy up naming on machine check code

o       Fix K6 CPU on dual board crash
o       Much faster block copy functions on the Athlon
o       Fix daemonize to do exit_files. All callers do this or should do
        anyway

o       Fix free then reference with pcbit isdn

o       de4x5 user space copy in spinlock fix
o       epic100 delay fixes
o       Avoid crash on iph5526 on out of memory
o       Fix locking bugs on roadrunner
o       Fix crash on insmod risk with many scsi drivers
o       Fix incorrect runtime panics in some scsi drivers
o       Fix HZ in the aha152x driver
o       Remove escaped and dead check for I2O in megaraid
o       Fix i810 audio driver
o       Fix cramfs initrd data loss bug
o       Fix power management locking
o       Fix resource printks that only print 4 digits
o       Fix missing return value in atm pvc
o       Disable SPX (doesnt work, no maintainer etc)
