SubjectRe: test version of 2.1.0 available

Hiho

(Linus: There is no new information for you in this mail, I just forgot to CC
my reply to the mailinglist, so I write it again).

pre-patch-2.1.0-#2 boots for me now, but some things are still not working:
- When I compile a kernel as a bzImage it doesn't boot (the computer resets
just like with the old pre-patch-2.1.0.
- The initial ramdisk doesn't work. It gets loadad and mounted, but then
linuxrc isn't started (I don't use compressed ramdisk images).
- Modules don't get loadad for me. Can someone please give me a summary of
the modules problems of 2.1.0 because I have accidently deleted the mails
about this topic. (I've written an ugly workaround for the
"A module named ... already exists" problem by looking in /proc/modules
if the module is really already loaded. But insmod still doesn't work, it
even causes oops now.)

Yes I use a 486.

No, the BSD ncr driver still only works IO-mapped :-(
