Cool.

FWIW, people can also download Alan's patches and Linus' pre-patches
from my 'gkernel' CVS at sourceforge. Instructions for anoncvs are on
the SourceForge home page, near the bottom:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gkernel/

Check out module 'linux_2_2' or 'linux_2_4'. You --MUST-- use a branch
tag when checking out. Branch tags are named based on kernel version,
ie.:

REL_2_4_1_ac11
REL_2_2_19_pre10
REL_2_4_2_pre3

Using CVS allows easy diff'ing of the full kernel
> cvs -z9 rdiff -u -r REL_2_4_1_ac10 -r REL_2_4_1_ac11 linux_2_4

or just a part of the tree
> cvs -z9 rdiff -u -r REL_2_4_1_ac10 -r REL_2_4_1_ac11 linux_2_4/drivers/net

(as a side note, if you s/REL/hack/ in the above tag names, you get my
public CVS tree...)

Any questions, or anyone wanting my CVS import/merge scripts, just let
me know.

Jeff
