Kernel patching 2.4.19pre1 -> 2.4.19pre2

Kernel patching 2.4.19pre1 -> 2.4.19pre2

Hi.

I'm trying to patch a 2.4.17 clean source tree to the latest 2.4.19-pre8 tree.
I can patch it until the 2.4.19pre1.
When I try to apply patch-2.4.19pre2.bz2, this happens:

wolf:/usr/src# patch -p0 < patch-2.4.19-pre2

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n]

I re-downloaded patch-2.4.19pre1.bz2 and tried again with the same results.
Where's the problem?
I'm using Debian 2.2 (Potato).

the 2.4.19pre patches are all against 2.4.18, IOW:
pre2 contains everything that is in pre1, too.

You should apply the 2.4.19pre8 patch directly to the 2.4.18 kernel
sources.

Thank you very much for the explanation!

1. 2.4.19rc2 -> 2.4.19rc3 : no more eth

Dear kernel crew.

I follow the stable kernel and run 2.4.18 just fine on 3 machines.

Recently I thought about trying 2.4.19rc kernels.  That went fine as
well with one exception.

One machine (with 2 ethernet controllers)
 Intel Corp. 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100] (rev 0c)
 3Com Corporation 3c900B-TPO [Etherlink XL TPO] (rev 04)
will no longer recognise -any- of those.

Note that this 'artifact' only happens with 2.4.19rc3.  The .config
between 2.4.19rc2 did not change 2.4.19rc3

During boot I see OOPses (which for some reason, my syslog does not
see).

Because this is a rather severe change [:-)] I wonder if I this rings
a bell.

Thanks for your valuable time
