No, the vger tree is code-frozen as well. The only large difference between
your tree and vger are the console drivers.

Some time ago, you promised you'll accept a single large video patch before
2.2 and I did send it to you, but I got ignored. The whole patch has no effect
on non-experimental i386 configuration, but it's essential to get almost all
other architectures work -- I really don't want to have the same situation
in 2.2 as we did in 2.0 where only i386 and Alpha were compilable from your
tree and all other architectures needed lots of patches. Please tell me what
should I do.

Have a nice fortnight
