And it'll never have a shade of a chance in even a semi-demanding
environment without stable, good, reliable releases. 2.0.29 *_IS_* a
release kernel- if it doesn't work for you, you have three choices:

1. Contribute!! =) patch it!!
2. Wait patiently for the next release from Linus. He's busy; leave him
alone if you can.
3. Drop back to an earlier release kernel, if necessary. (and only if..)

I personally can't use a release with bugs on a mission-critical
box-o-network-cards.... I'm waiting like everyone else.. =)
