    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 ?)
