Fine, but still it would be nice to provide at least some context when
forzarding such kind of mail, as a courtesy to offline readers, and
since i am not at home right now, my internet access is somewhat
Anyway, i have no read the bug report quickly, and notice that :
1) upcoming 2.6.5 packages will be fully modular.
2) For this reason, i have built JFS, XFS and reiserfs in the kernel a
week or two ago, so this should be no problem. I have no idea what the
testing status of it is though, but this should be fixed in the -8 in
unstable, which also closes a bunch of seucirty holes.
Hope this helps, and explains my misunderstanding about thisproblem.
