Humm, while waiting for the 2.2 kernel to stabilize, 2.0.36 has proved
rock solid (altough you need separate patches to compile on Alpha).
I am curious about what exactly make a 2.2 kernel required for potato
(a 2.2 kernel still require the previously posted patch for RTC)? It
would be a bad idea to require it, it would make the upgrade procedure
more complex, and error-prone.
