From: Alan Cox alan@lxorguk.ukuu.org.uk
To: linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
Subject: Linux 2.4.0test11-ac1
Differences between 2.4.0test11ac1 and 2.4.0test11, pretty much all merged
from stuff off the maintainers and kernel list.
For newcomers to these patches:
-       You can find them on ftp.*.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/alan
-       They are diffed against the base revision not cumulative diffs
-       Please report -ac bugs to me. I'm sure Linus doesn't want to know
        unless you can duplicate the problem on unadulterated 2.4test
