    Subjectlaptopkernel-2.4.21-rc4-laptop1 released

    I have started a project to create a kernel-patch containing various
    laptop-specific things.
    Especially it contains acpi, software suspend, supermount and some
    hardware compatibility patches.

    Our goal is to create a kernel that runs all hardware found in current
    If you have laptop-specific patches you think that should be in
    laptopkernel, contact us or submit them through savannahs patch-tracker.

    Full list of patches below, it can be downloaded at

    laptopkernel-2.4.21-rc4-laptop1 contains the following patches:

    Patch: acpi-20030523 (
    The ACPI in current kernels is very outdated. Most laptops won't have
    any Powermanagement without the ACPI-Patch and some even won't boot.

    Patch: swsusp 19-27 (
    Software Suspend makes hibernation possible in linux, which is a very
    important feature for laptops.

    Patch: agpgart from 2.4.21-rc2-ac3 (
    Laptops with the Centrino chipset need this for working agpgart, which
    is needed for hardware graphics acceleration (dri).

    Patch: drm modules from 2.4.21-rc2-ac3 (
    This update is needed for proper working dri in XFree 4.3.

    Patch: radeonfb from Benjamin Herrenschmidt (rsync -avz Radeon 9000 won't work with radeonfb
    found in the current kernel.

    Patch: bcm440+bcm5700 driver (from Gentoo-Sources)
    Needed for Broadcom Network cards found in many laptops.

    Patch: vivicam usb mass storage support (from Lycoris-Kernel)
    Needed for Vivicam 355 (working as USB mass storage).

    Patch: supermount-1.2.6 (
    Supermount is a useful feature for desktop-pcs.

    Patch: Optimization for pentium3/4 (trivial)
    Makes gcc3-optimizations for pentium3/4 possible.
    (Note: pentium4-optimizations should only be used with gcc 3.2.3 and
    above. If you have an older gcc, please use pentium3.)
