In 2.3 and beyond (current is 2.3.2 I think), there are a few 2.5
changes. Nothing required, though.

The biggest is NPTL, which takes advantage of all the threading stuff.

There is also sysenter support.

And support for new 2.5 system calls - most, but not all, of them are
there. I know the affinity calls are. And the new posix_fadvise().
