It has been over a month now that pre-patch-2.0.31-2.gz has been out,
and it seems to have been tested fairly well, and found a bit lacking.
For the most part, it works great. I am using it myself, but with about
5 additional patches stuck on. Any chance of getting a pre-patch-2.0.31-3.gz
to try out sometime soon? This will also help so that we can just say
we are running pre-patch-2.0.31-3 instead of stating that we are running
pre-patch-2.0.31-2 plus the Ext2 Filesystem Immuteable Flag Fix, plus
the Clear inode Race fix, plus several of the 20 different kinds of
strange buffer cache patches. I think it would be a good thing to
try out a pre-patch-2.0.31-3 with all the official latest and greatest,
because frankly, I have no idea at this point what is currently going
to go in, and what is being left out. A thread asking for this was started
on 2 Jul by Dr. Werner Fink. Linus || David S. Miller, any chance
publishing the latest chunk of changes? At least a development snapshot?
