Linux 2.4.17-rc1

Author: JT Smith

Tosatti: "Hi, I've just copied 2.4.17-rc1 to ftp.kernel.org... Its mirroring yet, probably. Well, I want people with the "unfreeable" buffer/cache problem to confirm with me that 2.4.17-rc1 is working ok. The same change which should fix that problem also should make 2.4 a bit less 'swap happy.'"http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/testing/patch-2.4.17-rc1.gz
