You should provide linux-2.4.17 with the 2.4.18 -rc4 patch

The official release of linux-2.4.18 is missing (it was a mistake) that patch 
and I heard it could break static binary on non x86 systems (in case you 
didn't know)

I believe once 2.4.19 will be released, 2.4.18 will be marked "dontuse".

Since 2.4.18 still invole many fixes.. I think it is a good thing to use it 
instead of 2.4.17 (but with the -rc4 changes!)
