    SubjectRe: Ptrace hole / Linux 2.2.25

    Sorry, but you seem to forget that a significant amount of people use kernels, but don't monitor LKML nor are able to choose from
    the various patches floating there the most appropriate fix.

    If 2.4.21 were expected in a few days, it would make sense to delay the
    fix, but this doesn't seem to be the case, so I think that a hot-fix
    really should be released quickly (either as or 2.4.21)

    And why couldn't it be the same for 2.4.21?

    Have a nice fortnight
