    Subject[ANNOUNCE] [PATCH] Linux-2.5.34-mcp1
    Hi there,

    since v2.5.25 the devel kernel series didn't boot for me. I've tested each new
    version but without success. Saw "Loading Linux..." and after that, a blank
    screen, even sysrq was non-working, even Serial Console didn't give me _any_
    output. I was really afraid, since I was not able to find that problem, that
    future 2.5.xx kernels won't boot for me also, BUT fortunately v2.5.34 boots
    again for me :-) and is working fine so far and I am really impressed how
    v2.5 goes ahead :-)

    Therefor I decided to make a really small patch available for vanilla v2.5.34
    kernel which includes the following:

    o 2.5.34-mm1 (Andrew Morton)
    o aty128 Framebuffer fixes (Paul Mackerras)
    o ftape damage fix (Mikael Pettersson)
    o devfs fix (Alexander Viro)
    o do_syslog__down_try lock lockup (Ingo Molnar)
    o floppy driver init/exit fixes (Mikael Pettersson)
    o pcibios_fixup_irqs-static (Adam J. Richter)
    o some tuning (me)
    - OPEN_MAX 1024
    - NR_FILE 65536
    - int sysctl_local_port_range[2] = { 1024, 9999 };
    o ext3 version information fix (me)
    o ALSA v0.9.0rc3 (ALSA Team)
    o XFS + KDB (2.5.33-20020908-cvs) (SGI)

    I hope you need this a bit and find it usefull as I do.

    Feedback welcome :)
