Subject[PATCH] 2.4.19-pre2, trylock for read/write semaphores
Marcelo-

Again I'm submitting a patch that adds trylock routines for
read/write semaphores. I haven't seen it appear in either
2.4.18 or 2.4.19-pre2.

David Howells has reviewed it and thinks its ready to be
submitted. I've tested it and I'm confident it works correctly.
It doesn't affect the stability of the kernel because nobody's
using it, yet. All comments and concerns raised on LKML about
this patch have been addressed. Both Christoph Hellwig and
Kendrick Smith have expressed interest in it for the file
system work they're doing.

Is there anything else I need to do to get it accepted into 2.4?
