Alan Cox: Linux 2.4.19rc1-ac5

The first release candidate of the Alan Cox edition of Linux kernel, 2.4.19rc1 is out. Download the kernel here, but make sure to check the changelog.
[+ indicates stuff that went to Marcelo, o stuff that has not,

   bad and was dropped out]

and I may have broken NUMA-Q. It does however boot/run correctly on the
conventional PC class boxes (uniprocessor and SMP) I've run it on even
