Agreed, but there's a significant difference between including bug fixes
and de-facto required architecture-specific updates and including a
completely new subsystem backported from 2.5 yet calling it 2.4. For
$DIETY's sake, we keep ALSA as a separate patch/module, why is putting
in IPSEC justified?
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
