Very very cool, it is work like this which will allow us to go forward and
maybe do 2.6.14-rc4 after -2 or in place of -2 even.

These three need checking by someone else, i guess the
removed-reference-to-removed-drivers was doomed to fail, ia64 needs work
anyway, not sure about the megaraid issue though.
I will look over the following patches :

This one is not applied at all and probably not needed, only there for
reference, until i have confirmation that it is not really needed.

Well, the second one is the one we use, while the first one is more able to go
upstream, will investigate. The first of the two is not currently applied
In the light of this, i would indeed vote to move our package to 2.6.14-rc4
(versioned at 184.108.40.206.rc4 or something, and maybe with 2.6.14-0 abi name),
even for the -2 upload of wednesday, comments anyone ?
