SubjectLinux 2.4.36.7
Hi all,

I've just released Linux 2.4.36.7.

The patch and changelog will appear soon at the following locations:
ftp://ftp.all.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/
ftp://ftp.all.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/patch-2.4.36.7.bz2
ftp://ftp.all.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/ChangeLog-2.4.36.7

Git repository:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.4.36.y.git
http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.4.36.y.git

Git repository through the gitweb interface:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.4.36.y.git

This release fixes several minor security issues and a few not other issues.
There's normally no emergency to upgrade, but I wanted to flush the patch
queue. I've also fixed an uninitialized variable in the sky2 backport. It
might have caused random trouble to some users.

Given that most distros today ship with a version of GCC which is not
compatible with kernel 2.4, I have added a small documentation explaining
how to build an older GCC when you only have a newer one. Building a
stripped-down GCC only takes between 1 and 2 minutes on recent machines,
so it's really worth it. This doc does not cover cross-compilation.

For those interested, please check Documentation/using-newer-gcc.txt.
