The 4Gig patches are the earlier set I have versus a clean 2.2.12. I did try
using Andrea's current set but they have a long dependancy chain against
patches I didnt want to add to this tree (yet anyway). Andrea - if there is
stuff fixed from the old->new one that isnt related to your other patches
can you let me know. 


2.2.13ac3 changes
o        DVD ioctl support
o        4Gig memory support
o        Raw I/O patches to allow 4Gig

2.2.13ac2 changes
-        Pull the PIII support. Too many problems. It may be back soon as
        HJ Lu and I have identified most of them and Doug fixed some already
-        IPVS updated to 0.9.2-2

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

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
o        KNFSD 0.4.7

Stuff Im considering if this one goes OK.
o        Andrea's memory balancing changes to test out
o        Reiserfs
o        ext3fs once the tools are ready
