Subject[PATCHSET] Linux 2.4.19-rc3-jam1
Hi all.

New release.

Main changes:
- updated to -rc3-aa1
- some changes to the processor selection config
- corefile names
- final sensors 2.6.4
- I have dropped the irqrate patch to the end of the list so you can skip
it without disturbing the rest of patches of applying cleanly. I really
do not trust it. It gave performance gains, but it hangs my box on rmmod.
Some small bits of it have gone into -aa tree (expect better net latency ?)

Enjoy !!
