Subject[ANNOUNCE] Linux-2.4.32-hf32.6
Hi,

Last hotfix caused some regression : a recent patch caused 7 panics at
boot on Grant Coady's machines, I'm quickly releasing a new hotfix with
this patch reverted. I have restricted download permissions on previous
one (32.5) in order to avoid a large mess.

If you have already downloaded 32.5, please either apply he patch included
in this mail, or download plain 32.6 from the sites below.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Willy

Changelog from 2.4.32-hf32.5 to 2.4.32-hf32.6
---------------------------------------
'+' = added ; '-' = removed
- 2.4.32-ext3-link-unlink-race-1 (Vadim Egorov)

7 panics at boot reported by Grant Coady. Looks like dentry->d_inode is
NULL in vfs_unlink(). Reverting the patch for now.
