It looks like the download page
( is out of date:

"See below for how to apply patches.

patch for 2.2.16-2.2.19 (released 2001-05-27)
patch for 2.4.2-2.4.4 (released 2001-05-22)
No patch is needed for newer 2.4 kernels and 2.5. Get
the latest version of this series or use svn."

I couldn't find a branches directory in the nightly tarball
link at .

Obviously I'm doing something wrong. :-)
Is there some page on linux1394 which contains either a tar of the
current 2.4 tree or a the most recent patch against 2.4?
My sincere thanks for all your work and help.
