Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 00_alpha-iommu_fixup-1 Really reserve the last mbytes of 32bit pci space for cypress magics. Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 00_alpha-sg_fill-1 When splitting one virtual consecutive sg slot into many physically consecutive slots update the dma_length of ex-leader and ex-mergers correctly. Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 00_debug-vm-lru-mm-corruption-1 Add debugging code, during heavy load a BUG() triggered in DEBUG_ADD_PAGE in page_launder while removing a buffer from the inactive_dirty, despite we cleared the inactive_dirty bitflag from the page->flags some other bitflag was still set, this could be random memory corruption but it could also be a race condition in the vm. Unfortunately the printk in BUG() clobbered %eax so I couldn't see the contents of page->flags from the bugreport so now I'm printing page->flags explicitly before BUG() so next time we'll see if page->flags was just random or in which other list the page was supposed to be too. Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 00_drm_vm-1 Never use page->virtual directly, always use page_address(page) to get that information, so we keep saving ram when highmem is not selected and on 64bit archs in general. Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 00_module-oops-1 Andi extracted the module_oops code from -ac, ready to be applied to mainline. Only in 2.4.8pre6aa1: 40_blkdev-pagecache-10 Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 40_blkdev-pagecache-11 Fixed trivial rejects, fsync_no_super lines. Only in 2.4.8pre6aa1: 50_uml-2.4.7-3.bz2 Only in 2.4.8pre8aa1: 50_uml-2.4.7-5.bz2 Picked new -5 revision from sourceforge. Andrea
