[m68k] no 2.2.18 yet, maybe we will have a new set of 2.2.10 kernels, but
they should be tested a little by our users. We might build 2.2.16 or
17 kernels, but I think there is not enough time to test this.
2.2.10 should be ready tomorrow, Nick already built a kernel-patch,
but we will not upload this before its tested.
