Feedback on 2.2.15 (wasRe: Kernel Stable: 2.2.15pre4 )

I've been trying the 2.2.15 prereleases, and so far they seem great.
2.2.15 pre 4 (subjectively speaking) made my system much zippier
than 2.2.13/4 and 2.2.15 pre 5 which I built last night, feels
faster still (and apparently has some rather neat debug code to
trap bad application memory use/kernel bugs).

So overall I'm very pleased. Many thanks to Alan and the guys who've
been working on the VM stuff. It feels great for me.

BTW I'm running this on Mandrake 6.1, Cyrix 6x86 MX 300, 64MB RAM.

Like I say, 2.2.15 feels like it's shaping up to be the best 2.2 kernel
yet by a significant margin (to me at least!)

Before you buy.

1. Kernel compiling (2.2.15pre19)

    How did you solve this?  In the instructions for updating to the
2.2.14pre9 kernel it says that the keyboard/mouse fixes aren't needed for
the newer kernels.  Since there were no keyboard/ mouse patches I did
nothing.  My system boots up fine with the 2.2.15pre3 kernel so I can make
any modifications through this.

Thanks for any help,
