Look, Linus. Things should _not_ happen this way.

Why do we add non-trivial changes when going from last -preX of a test kernel
series to -final?

Please make the last stable -preX the -final _without_ any changes. This is
the third time this caused problem in recent times (2.4.11-dontuse, parport
compile problems and now loop.o), and why don't we learn from previous

Isn't it stupid that some tarballs in the /pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/ do not even
compile, while those in /pub/linux/kernel/testing/ does?




Debian GNU/Linux (kernel 2.4.14-pre7)

I cannot conceive that anybody will require multiplications at the rate
of 40,000 or even 4,000 per hour ...
