2.2.13ac1 is now on kernel.org.

I'm trying to build a sort of plus pack of probably stable stuff not all of
which will ever end up in 2.2 proper. Something else I want to stress here
Not all of it may end up in 2.3.x either nor compatibly. 

The idea is to drop fairly stable blocks of additional support in as a 2.2
extended kernel for those who want the facilities. If you don't need the
extra facilities you should expect 2.2.13 generic to be more stable.

2.2.13ac1 is the first test release of this lot together so it probably
has bugs. Please report them to me not to driver maintainers (except for
the specific whole new features). 


Features added that probably won't be going into 2.2. proper
o        RAW I/O
o        IP Virtual Server (load balancing across servers)
o        RAID 0.90
o        Knfsd update
o        Pentium III support

Features added which will go into 2.2 if they prove ok in 2.2.13ac
o        Cross platform fixes for the audio code
o        Alpha platform updates that didnt quite make 2.2.13
o        Multi APIC support
o        Hash table sizing by system memory size
o        PCI ID updates
o        PCnet/PCI updates - IBM card support, FIFO handling, go faster

Stuff Im considering if this one goes OK.

o        Bigmem
o        Andrea's memory balancing changes to test out
o        ext3fs once the tools are ready
o        Reiserfs
