    SubjectLinux 2.4.30-rc2

    Here goes the second release candidate for v2.4.30.

    It contains a bunch of security updates (ext2 mkdir leak, af_bluetooth range
    checking, isofs corrupt media, load_elf_library DoS), an ia64 update, another
    round of networking fixes, amongst others.

    If nothing terrible shows up, this will become v2.4.30.

    Please help with testing!
