I have built an experimental kernel-patch package which can be found at:


It includes a rather large patch to update the kernel source tree from
2.2.13 (the latest kernel source available in potato) to an i386 native
2.2.16 tree.

It also includes:
 o a diff of mac68k CVS as of this morning
 o Richard Zidlicky's 040 bus error patch
 o a couple of VME fixes that are missing from mac68k CVS
 o gcc272 Makefile patch
 o MVME147 support

Missing, is the clgen debug info patch, if someone would send it to me I'd
be grateful... Christian? :)

As I've already said this package is experimental, and there are problems
with the approach of patching the kernel source from one version to another.
Firstly it make the package very large. Secondly it will break make-kpkg if
it is configured to automatically apply the patches (it will try to find
patches that match the source tree version and fail). Perhaps we should
discuss the strategy for getting the 2.2.16 kernel-source and images into

Finally, I have not even attempted to compile a kernel using this patch set
so be warned.
