SubjectPatches in 2.4.17-pre2 that aren't in 2.5.1-pre8
Hi,

patches that go into the stable kernel should also go into the development
kernel. I was wondering how good this works and I was surprised that only
few patches that were applied to the 2.4 kernels also went into the 2.5
kernels. Below is a list of patches in 2.4.17-pre2 that are missing in
2.5.1-pre8. The name below the changelog entries is the name of the file
if you download the missing patches from [1].

Before applying them they need to be checked: Most of the patches apply
cleanly but there are some (most of them trivial) rejects and what's more
important: I checked whether the patches seem to be missing from
2.5.1-pre8, not whether they compile or produce working code.

I don't know whether this work is redundant, I was mostly interested in
how much of the patches in the 2.4 kernels went into the 2.5 kernels. If
it helps other people I can continue it up to more recent 2.4 kernels.

Any comments are welcome.

Adrian
