    The transname stuff went in around 2.1.3x but was removed again around
    2.1.4x, I think. This is a bit of a shame, as it would have been really
    useful for nfs-root boxes.

    The ISA PnP driver only had its help merged from Alan's tree, I think.
    You can pick up the full patch from
    ftp://ftp.lmh.ox.ac.uk/pub/linux/pnp/pnp-0.3beta6.tar.gz.

    For what it's worth, I'd like to see the PnP driver in 2.1.x soon. Aside
    from a couple of TODOs (better sysctl, among other things), it's pretty
    solid, and the driver mods are pretty straightforward.

    But it's not my place to say what goes in... :)

    Matthew.
