    It does, no (build) regressions. BTW, tree is not far from allmodconfig
    buildable on a bunch of targets now - yesterday pile of fixes was about
    half of the set needed for that. Most of the remaining stuff is for
    m68k (and applies both to Linus' tree and m68k CVS); I'll send that today
    and if Geert ACKs them, we will be _very_ close to having 2.6.13 build
    out of the box on the following set:
    alpha, amd64, arm (RPC and versatile being tracked), i386, ia64, m32r,
    m68k (!SUN3), ppc (6xx, 44x, chestnut being tracked), ppc64, sparc,
    sparc64, s390, s390x, uml-i386, uml-amd64.

    All of these - with allmodconfig, alpha, amd64 and i386 being tracked
    separately as SMP and UP. Missing targets:
    frv: need newer toolchain on build box
    mips, parisc: need out-of-tree patches
    v850, m68knommu: gcc gives ICE on attempt to build cross-toolchain
    h8300: binutils in FC4 doesn't know what to do with that target,
    have not tried that on sarge yet.
    sh, sh64: need kernel headers that would make glibc happy enough
    to build libc headers for that puppy; I don't have them
    cris, xtensa: haven't looked into those
    arm26: needs gcc3 since gcc4 had dropped that target; I might take
    a look into that on a sarge-based build box someday.

    sun3 is seriously broken and I doubt that we'll see any takers for testing
    2.6 on those anyway ;-)

    A bunch of arm and ppc subarchitectures are not covered yet - I can add those
    to build setup, just give me a list in order of preference. Or ask me how
    to set up a cross-build farm of your own...
