Subject[CFT] updated linux kernel preemption patch
Updated preempt-kernel patches for 2.4.12, 2.4.13, 2.4.14, 2.4.13-ac7
and 2.4.15-pre4 (whew) are available at:

Linus, I would recommend using that.

Full ChangeLog:

- make preempt_enable conditional unlikely
- merge ARM support

- (ac tree only) back out tty race fix as it was merged with proper
