The 2.4.19-rmk7 has proven very solid on the netwinder.org autobuilder.
There are binaries dated Dec 2nd or so which include fixes for several
security bug including do_brk.

On the same machines I have not had luck with 2.4.21, it boots okay but
under continuous load, seems to crash within about 24 hours - without
any oops message on the screen or via serial port.
