The prolific Alan Cox has another version of Linux ready: "Bug squash number one. This should fix the 'it doesnt compile at all' bug.
The other change here is that support for faster processors, that will catch
out anyone using (abusing) udelay with extremely large values. If you get
a link error or a module load error about bad_udelay let me know." The announcement's posted at LWN.net.
