Yeah, it seems we just gained some time. About one year so...
Nevertheless, it would be good to receive some feedback on the mac kernel.
There was an upload planned for tomorrow, if I knew the changes were ok, I
would commit them. My mac is still busy building packages, maybe I can test
it there during the weekend.

Another mac related question, the machine was unresponsive yesterday, I had
thousands of eth0 timed out messages. I assume if I could have reloaded the
network driver, I could have avoided the reboot. Is there any reason why we
can not have the network drivers as modules instead of built-in? The initrd
does not work, it is a little more inconveniant since we have to have the
modules installed, but that is no problem with the linux-image. Would there
be any problem for the installation? IIRC macs do not netboot, so?
