Yep, been there and fixed it. Unfortunatly, the patch is not in 2.1.21
yet. It was sent to the linux-hams list and Linus on Jan 9th.
If anybody desperately needs it: Browse the archives or ask me... ;-)

Hm, looks like 2.1.21 compiled cleanly for me...

(later: um, but it locks up with an oops right after mounting the root
partition. Well, back to the old kernel...)

Joerg Reuter ampr-net:

I used to be a werewolf but I'm better now--ooooooooow! ;-)
