Subject: Linux 2.4test-ac merge status
This is to help give folks an idea of what -ac stuff has been pushed to Linus,
is still in need of work, has been dumped in the bitbucket of bad ideas etc
Most of the important driver stuff is now in the Linus tree. There are a few
I'd like to see sorted before 2.4.0 release still. I'll be working on those
as a priority. Other stuff like the fusion drivers can wait.
