    SubjectLinux 2.4.25-pre5


    Here is -pre5.

    This version fixes the "memory filled with unfreeable inodes" problem
    which occurs on high memory machines in some workloads. That is the last
    big problem 2.4 VM had with highmem I believe.

    It contains a few other important fixes:
    - fixes a SMP deadlock introduced during 2.4.23 (which could hang the
    machine on high filesystem activity).
    - fixes a memory allocation deadlock in USB

    Amongst others.

    Please test it!
