Hi all,

ok, next 2.6-WOLK release. Apply ontop of a vanilla 2.6.4 from kernel.org.

Many thanks to Rik van Ballegooijen and all the other people sending fixes!

... Have fun and a nice weekend :)

- ---------
We now have 5 addons in place, named: grsecurity2, Win4Lin, gobohide, SysTrace
and finally the Staircase Scheduler by Con. I won't merge any of these
patches into mainline 2.6-WOLK in the near future. You have to decide what
addon feature you like to have :) ... Another reason is, I won't break users
of 4g/4g, 4k stacks nor uml-skas3, currently a no-go with grsecurity. Apply
an addon/the addons manually. All five patches are located in the patch itself
in the ./ADDON-patches directory after applying the main patch. Apply as

wolk2.2 was never released (ok, it was available for some hours but I removed
it because it was broken. Therefore, changelog included too)

- -----------------
- - Loop-AES won't work with per-backing dev unpluggin code in WOLK.
But fortunately loop-AES coders updated their code. So get the newest
version before trying loop-AES with WOLK (includes also -mm tree)
