Hi Martin, Hi All,

Here are a fresh batch of kernel packages to look at as per
the above. Please not that the file names are the same so look for
the files dated 26th November.

Note that the kernel-image package didn't change, other
than being rebuilt against the updated source so the
changelog is the same, although the compiled binraries differ.

If interested parties could take a look before I upload them I would
be grateful. Interested parties = anyone who wants to use a debian
2.4 kernel in sarge.



Also, evertything should be in SVN.
