Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

Kernel.org Mirrors

Patch queue under control again, this gets the interesting bits
out of the way, and introduces some of the kbuild2.5 bits in a
hope to cut down the number of "Will you merge kbuild2.5" mails
I get each day.

As usual,..

Patch against 2.5.20 vanilla is available from:

Merged patch archive: http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/patches/merged/

Check http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/Linux-2.5.html before reporting
known bugs that are also in mainline.
