SubjectLinux 2.4.5-ac1

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/alan/2.4/

Intermediate diffs are available from
http://www.bzimage.org

In terms of going through the code audit almost all the sound drivers still
need fixing to lock against format changes during a read/write. Poll creating
and starting a buffer as write does and also mmap during write, write during
an mmap.

This is the merge with Linus 2.4.5 tree. Its probably primarily of interest
to folks who want to review the merge - in paticular on the VM side of
things.
