          Release Notes: This version features USB updates, more rw-sem stuff, and network callback cleanups and fixes. Coda now uses the proper VFS layer interfaces so that it can use "non-traditional-unix" filesystems without inode numbers for backing store.

              Release Notes: This isnt a proper release as such, it should just deal with most of the compile failure/symbol failure problems.

                Release Notes: The I2O post handling code was rewriten to fix DMA memory scribbles. IOP constipation in the i2o_block layer is now handled. Bugs in the I2O table query which were causing reboots in i2o_proc on the DPT card were fixed. Quirks were added for I2O cards that handle large I/O queues badly (Promise supertrak100). Cache heuristics were added to the I2O block driver. The use of writeback caching is now disabled if there is no battery backup. Linus 2.4.4pre6 was merged. Further semaphore fixes were made. The netfilter FTP flaw reported on bugtraq has hopefully been fixed. unistd.h was fixed for ARM. Pre-emption of RT tasks was fixed. Revalidation bugs in cciss/cpqarray when rereading partitions were fixed. The IrDA disconnect timeout bug was fixed. Dead low MTU checks were removed from drivers. The fastrak oops was hopefully fixed.
