Any suggestions on making this patch "more friendly" with 2.5.44-ac3?
Apparently some of his patch mucked around in the timers source files as
well as defining completely opposite macros in
arch/i386/kernel/timers/Makefile. I might of missed it, but I didn't
notice anything in his changelog which would jump out at me, except for
some of the Cyrix fixes. I'm going to give it a shot, but I thought I'd
ask as well.
