answer questions about Linux -- I merely summarize the kernel patches.
Jeff Tranter added to CREDITS.
Cyclades async mux driver added.
More SPARC additions.
SBPro version 2.9 adds support for the Longshine LCS-7260.
IOCTL added for multisession support.
Console switching changed a little, to add a memory of the last console.
Oops. Unprotected get_fs_long in serial IOCTL handler (set_modem_info
call in serial.c). This means that you could access memory
that you didn't have read permission for.
Don't let anyone but the superuser change the keyboard and/or video mode.
The dummy networking driver doesn't do ARP.
EtherExpress driver doesn't set the multicast list.
PLIP driver improved, also registers the I/O ports it uses.
EATA driver now supports ISA boards (DPT PM2011, DPT PM2021), and uses
DMA. EISA boards should be level triggered.
SCSI block devices can sometimes deadlock. Code was added to unlock them.
Oops, a few SCSI printk's used the wrong format.
SCSI tape timeout increased.
SCSI file mark counter increased only if positive.
All ISA boards get host->block set so we can support multiple ISA boards reliably.
CDROM Multisession support added to isofs.
Make sure we have read permission on the file times structure for all fs's.
Oops, didn't set the type of the superblock when initializing the structure.
Search for the SBPro card at 0x340 before the one at 0x230.
Call the calibrate_delay routine before the character and block device
Reset to TIME_WRITE on a WRITE timeout instead of a TIME_CLOSE.
BSD time wait code was frobbed.
