SubjectLinux 2.4.5-ac7

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/alan/2.4/

Intermediate diffs are available from
http://www.bzimage.org

In terms of going through the code audit almost all the sound drivers still
need fixing to lock against format changes during a read/write. Poll creating
and starting a buffer as write does and also mmap during write, write during
an mmap.
