Subject2.4.19 corrupt file system, 2.4.20 Makefile problem
I've been running 2.4.19 for quite awhile, but today it locked up, had
to be hard rebooted, and trashed my ext3 file system. Something about
a seemingly infinite number of Duplicate/Bad Blocks from fsck even
though the hard drive is fine. I assumed with the journal the file
system would be rock solid, but ... I'm hoping 2.4.20 proves more
stable; has anyone else seen 2.4.19 trash the hard drive?

2.4.20 doesn't build on my RH7.2 box which uses gcc 2.96 due to a mod
to the Makefile which I just undid and subsequently compiled just
fine. Without said line, stdarg.h (which isn't part of the linux
kernel includes) is not found since -nostdinc probably removes *all*
include directories not explicitly specified, including:

---New make line---
kbuild_2_4_nostdinc := -nostdinc -iwithprefix include

---Old make line---
kbuild_2_4_nostdinc := -nostdinc $(shell $(CC) -print-search-dirs
| sed -ne 's/install: \(.*\)/-I \1include/gp')

If stdarg.h doesn't belong in the kernel distribution, perhaps the
configure or make process could do some checking to make sure the
appropriate include directory for stdarg.h is included in that
