I've no idea.  I've also no idea about the validity of e.g. lots of
the networking stuff (thus my RFC).  I'll turn it off.  (Just out of
interest, would software watchdog work?)

Umm, yep.  For some reason the default i386 kernel doesn't include
sound, but I thought the m68k one should.  I thought I had made them
modules, but obviously not.

2.0.33 + Geert's fbmem patch + Andreas' PROT_NONE patch.

No idea, certainly not me.  Presumably it works though?  And since
it's a module, does it matter?

See above :-)

I was just following Herbert's lead here.  I can make it NFS_FS=y if
you want.

As a module for an install kernel.  Maybe I'm missing something
obvious, but as modules, this stuff takes up nothing but disk space,

If you think they're safe, sure, why not.  The m68k diff's already 3Mb
uncompressed :/
