    SubjectRe: 2.1.44
    I'd have to say, without any unusla settings than normal, I booted 2.1.44
    without a single lockup, crash, or OOPS. Didn't even notice the fs
    corruption for a little while till I rmed some files and checked my disk
    space. Nothing special setup, copied a .config from 2.1.44-3... Even
    included modules for all the filesystems.. Not a single error. 2.1.43
    clean untar, patched with patch-2.1.44.gz. I forgot to install the
    modules, so I never tried testing them, and I only booted 2.1.44 once.
