Packages to run kernel 2.4.x on potato (release 11)

I have prepared the packages needed to run kernels up to 2.4.4 on a Debian
2.2r3 (potato) system. Please read [1] for more information.

The most important change in this release are the new kernel-* packages
(as always made by Herbert Xu) that include an important netfilter
security fix.

Changes since the last release:

          + added: chrony
          + added: hotplug
          + updated: iptables (1.2.1-1 -> 1.2.1a-2)
          + updated: kernel-image-2.4.3-i386 (2.4.3-1 -> 2.4.3-2)
            The following packages were removed because they are not
            really needed (there are other packages that you can use
               o kernel-headers-2.4.3-pentiumiii
               o kernel-headers-2.4.3-pentiumiii-smp
               o kernel-image-2.4.3-pentiumiii
               o kernel-image-2.4.3-pentiumiii-smp
          + updated: kernel-source-2.4.3 (2.4.3-3 -> 2.4.3-4)
          + added a patch to umount in util-linux to prevent users from
            umounting partitions root has mounted (when the user option
            is set in /etc/fstab)
          + removed: usbmgr
