    It may be relevant to ask which pre-2 Michael is talking about. DaveM's
    pre-2 and Linus's more recent pre-2 are very different things. i.e.

    [Linus's]
    -rw-r--r-- 1 ftp-adm ftp 31444 Aug 3 22:41 pre-patch-2.0.31-1.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 ftp-adm ftp 219021 Aug 4 22:44 pre-patch-2.0.31-2.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 ftp-adm ftp 563339 Aug 5 00:42 pre-patch-2.0.31-3.gz

    [copies of DaveM's on one of my boxes]
    -rw-r----- 1 root root 682310 Jun 3 02:02 pre-patch-2.0.31-2.gz
    -rw-r----- 1 root root 393514 May 7 12:25 pre-patch-2.0.31.gz

    Linus starting over with the pre-patch-2.0.31 name and his own set of
    patches is likely to cause all sorts of confusion like the above.

    Maybe if we plant some complainers on the Sparc mailing list, DaveM
    could be pursuaded to work on the 2.0.3x kernels again :)
