2.5.6 has the original version of the patch kit, which includes the
workarounds for Dell laptops but doesn't include the newer blacklist
rules for the Thinkpad T20 and the MSI-6163.

2.4.19-pre3 has the relevant core changes, but lacks the actual DMI
rules and local APIC workarounds. I believe the -ac versions also
only include the core changes.


p.s. The update for 2.4.19-pre3 and the full kit for 2.4.18 are
at <> as usual.
