2.2 is the kernel used in woody. As I said, I don't expect to make it into
woody. We'd need another point release for that, and a new build of the
boot-floppies. My last m68k fixes never made it into an official release of
the boot-floppies, why should it change now? Of course I could build another
unofficial set, will take a couple of days CPU time together with new

I'd much prefer patches for the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels, which can actually make
it into sarge. 2.2.25 might still be in sarge, but there is no reason to use
it anymore, since 2.6 is at least as good and stable as 2.2.25 ever was:
