Subject[PATCH] devfs v190 available
  Hi, all. Version 190 of my devfs patch is now available from:
http://www.atnf.csiro.au/~rgooch/linux/kernel-patches.html
The devfs FAQ is also available here.

Patch directly available from:
ftp://ftp.??.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/rgooch/v2.4/devfs-patch-current.gz

AND:
ftp://ftp.atnf.csiro.au/pub/people/rgooch/linux/kernel-patches/v2.4/devfs-patch-current.gz

REMINDER: this patch and earlier patches include support for >2000
SCSI discs. Complete ChangeLog against 2.4.9 is appended.

This is against 2.4.9. Highlights of this release:

- Updated README from master HTML file

- Replaced BKL with global rwsem to protect symlink data (quick and
dirty hack)

Regards,

Richard....
