Packages to run kernel 2.4.x on potato (release 27)

I have prepared the packages needed to run kernels up to 2.4.19 on a
Debian 2.2r7 (potato) system. Please read [1] for more information.

The updated kernel packages contain a fix for a i386 DoS attack that
allows every user to crash the computer [2]. If you run older kernels
on a computer where you don't fully trust all users it's highly
recommended to upgrade the kernel.

Changes in this release:

       "Is there not promise of rain?" Ling Tan asked suddenly out
        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
