Full Changelog

From:   Marcelo Tosatti <marcelo@conectiva.com.br>
To:     lkml <linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org>
Subject: Linux 2.4.19-pre8

Hi, 


Here goes the pre8. I plan just one more -pre before starting the -rc
stage.

One might ask why 2.4.19 is taking so long to be released. The reason are
the IDE changes: They need to be widely tested, its _really_ critical
code.
