SubjectRe: [lkcd-general] Re: status of LKCD into Linux Kernel
A lot of progress has been made ...

LKCD is currently up to 2.4.17, and should be simple to
move into 2.5.

I've asked Linus and others for inclusion in the past, and I
think it deserves consideration for 2.5, especially now that it
can be built into the kernel without having to be turned on.
At least in those cases, people who want it can turn it on,
and those that don't will never see it.

The LKCD development team (over 10 engineers now) is ready.
