Decided to take full advantage of the lax 2.5.xx Linux kernel development (since Linus Torvalds is allegedly on holiday... at the LCA Linux conference in Australia) to work on the ARM 2.4 Linux kernel. I have to goals here - to release a 2.4.19-rmk5 kernel, and then a 2.4.20-rmk1 kernel to the community.

Well, today I released the 2.4.19-rmk5 kernel to the community for their indulgence, but I'm expecting some bug reports to come back in (preferably with patches) mainly due to the interrupt handling changes. I'd rather not put these into 2.4, but they seem to be required for some ARM machines.

Tracking two kernel series is not the most fun thing to do, especially when there are differences and you haven't looked at one series for months. Personally, I'd rather have only the one kernel series to concentrate on. (Unfortunately, I tend to let the 2.4 kernel series drift, which isn't a particularly good thing to do.)

ARM Linux managed to appear in the news today at IDG in an article about CVS, claiming that CVS was a key tool to ARM Linux. It is?
