Just in case that someone missed Linus's amusing announcement...


From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds at transmeta.com>
Subject: Linux-2.4.0-test2
To: Kernel Mailing List <linux-kernel at vger.rutgers.edu>
CC: Alan Cox <alan at redhat.com>

There's a "test2" kernel out there now, integrating most of the -ac
patches, and some code that wasn't in -ac. 

Normally, when you integrate almost 5MB of patches, bad things happen.
This time, a miracle occurred. As I uploaded the resultant kernel, a
specter of the holy penguin appeared before me, and said "It is Good. It
is Bugfree".

As if wanting to re-assure me that yes, it really =was= the holy
it finally added "Do you have any Herring?" before fading out in a puff
holy penguin-smoke. Only a faint whiff of rancid fish remains as I type
these words..

In short, not only are most of Alan's patches integrated, I have it on
higher authority that the result is perfect.

So if it doesn't compile for you, you must be doing something wrong.
