Author: JT Smith

It's at ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/alan/2.4/. Intermediate diffs are available from http://www.bzimage.org.
Cox writes,
Rather than starting to propogate these fixes to other drivers I'd be
greatful if they would audit the changes (especially the sound one)
carefully. That way we can ripple correct changes to the other drivers
rather than duplicating several rounds of fixes into each driver we
touch."
