I have finally finished wading through the bug reports and
put togther kernel-source-2.4.27 2.4.27-9 and
This update does _NOT_ contain ABI breakage,
although one symbol has been added to the ABI.
That is, the fix for CAN-2005-0449 has been omitted.
I am currently doing the final builds and intend to tag and upload these
later today, or tomorrow at the latest. If you have feedback, now would
be an excellent time to make it known.
If anyone wants to test these packages, or kick off some builds,
I have made the kernel-source packages available at the URL below.
I will add the i386 kernel-image packages as soon as they finish
building (which takes an hour or so).
The changelogs are below.
kernel-image-2.4.27-i386 (2.4.27-9) unstable; urgency=low
* Remove one more file in clean target. (Josh Kwan)
* Build against 2.4.27-kernel-tree-2.4.27-9. (Simon Horman)
* Fix up AMD descriptions to include CPU name.
Thanks to J. Grant. (Simon Horman)
