SubjectLinux 2.4.21-pre5

So here goes -pre5.

Summary of changes from v2.4.21-pre4 to v2.4.21-pre5

o rivafb 0.9.4 update

o ia64: fix typo in ia32_support.c

o Fix a bug in the workaround for closed P2P bridge IO windows which could actually break bridges that didn't need fixing
o Export atomic_{clear,set}_mask for modules
o Request Open Firmware to open all "display" devices instead limiting us to the first one. This helps getting all cards properly POSTed
o Prevent the stack from growing on reads. This works around a problem with the mount syscall calling copy_mount_options() which can trigger a fault via copy_from_user() between the last core VMA and the stack.
