Version: 2.6.14-2
Severity: normal


please consider not using CONFIG_MODVERSIONS in future. Reason: it makes
installation of alternative modules with the same names hard till
unpossible. Current example: ipw2200, which is contained in 2.6.14 in a
very old version. I cannot load the new version because lots of errors
about conflicting versions are detected (in dependent ieee82... modules
which I have built as well).
