Subjecttask_struct offsets broken in 2.1.77
Hi,

The changes in the task_struct introduced in 2.1.77 caused the offsets
to task_struct fields used in arch/i386/kernel/entry.S to be shifted one
longword, the whole thing worked only by some means of magic. The following
patch corrects these offsets, but wouldn't it be good to switch to
machine-generated offsets as Sparc people already do?

Have a nice fortnight
