SubjectRe: Linux-2.1.129..

Sorry for spoiling a party, but IMHO it's far too early for such an
announcement...

First of all, some modules still do have unresolved symbols:

=== Cut ===
/lib/modules/2.1.129/net/strip.o: unresolved symbol(s)
arp_tbl
/lib/modules/2.1.129/misc/isdnloop.o: unresolved symbol(s)
strpbrk
/lib/modules/2.1.129/misc/icn.o: unresolved symbol(s)
strpbrk
=== Cut ===

The last two are caused by missing "EXPORT_SYMBOL(strpbrk);" in i386_ksyms.c
(it's present in another arch's).

The first one is broken for a long time. I dunno how to fix it...

Second, the kernel locks hard when loading eepro100 (ARGHHH !!!) module.
Back to my patched 1.04...
