Just as a note, I've added the development patches (for Linux 2.4.6 -
2.4.10) to the package. After today's dinstall run, they'll be in sid.
I'm hoping this is the right move... Some people have complained about lack
of updates, and I can't say I totally blame them.
In the near future, I may drop the patches for the older kernels, if I get
positive feedback on the development patches. This would have the added
benefit of deprecating the kernel-patch-xfs-core patch package, assuming
1.0.1++ won't be using the two-patch model.
