SubjectLinux 2.4.23-pre4


Here goes -pre4, which contains networking update, IA64 update, PPC
update, USB update, bunch of knfsd fixes, amongst others.

And finally merge most important part of -aa VM. Those changes are fixing
some OOM deadlocks, give us better per-zone balancing and better
reclaiming. The OOM killer has been removed.

I've been using it on my 256MB desktop: performance feels much better, but
it needs extensive testing, so please help.
