I decided to try it because of this. My test machine was a Compaq
Presario 12XL325, PIII-650, RedHat 8.0 with updates. The cardbus bridge
is listed as a TI PCI1410 controller. I've been doing daily bk pulls and
compiles on this machine for some time with no problems noted on the
resulting kernel. On the cardbus interface I have an SMC wireless NIC as
modules.

I downloaded the mm-6 patch and a pristine 2.5.64 tarball. After applying
the patch I compiled with the standard configuration I've been using all
along. No problems were noted during the compile cycle. During bootup
the system locked up at the point where it did a modprobe uhci-hcd for the
USB controller. Nothing of interest was noted in the log. I rebooted
with nousb in the command line and got a good boot. After working with
this kernel for awhile I don't see anything out of the ordainary except
that on a 2.5.64-bk kernel I get 330 Kbytes per second download speed
whereas with mm6 I get 280 Kbytes per second. Several runs show this is
fairly consistent, with results within one or two percent.
