These changes are archived on ftp.emlist.com:pub/kchanges. I cannot
answer questions about Linux -- I merely summarize the kernel patches.
This summary was written by Linus:
Alpha boot-stuff and a few header files (some of which are just stubs
for now). No, it won't even compile yet, I'm doing my work on
another source tree..
Screendumping support for text-mode to make it possible to save the
attributes of a dump as well (and to set them).
Printer driver does the correct IO region tests and allocations, so if
the IO addresses overlap another card, at least the kernel
will not use them at the same time.
Apricot net-driver should compile again.
"rw_bugfix" defined by default for ne2000 clones.
Updated PLIP driver - reportedly much lower latency.
IN2000 driver should compile, but is reportedly not very stable.
Various speeling errors fixed (again).
Photocd bugfix, but photocd support not enabled right now due to some
problem-reports (which may actually have gone away now, but...)
ISO-fs directory handling bug fixed.
ISO-fs read-ahead code fixed.
File locking made dynamic (duh, as if anybody really cared).
Better error codes from the mount() system calls.
UDP get_socket() "fix" removed.
