Well that's will be better with at least a title and  the patch attached
(always bad webmail wrapping)

Thanks for you understand.


Hello *,

following pb encountered by James Morris (as describe in
I figure out that I forget to propose the Dave's patch for our platform.
I am not able to manage for 2.4 the big job that Matthew did for 2.6, also
i hope that this stuff will help:

I tested on 2.4.2[67] a time ago; it's also already applied in upstream
for sparc64 arch.

If it's ok for *,  can somebody ci (np cvs access)?


PS: James, do you have the opportunity to test the 2.4 kernel with this
patch? (to be absolutly sure it solves the pb). Thanks in advance.
