Re: compiling kernels newer than 2.6.8

That is all well and good but where is this cramfs patch? It
definitely does not exist in the kernel-patch package and if you look
for the lines that need to be changed they already are in vanilla
kernels greater than 2.6.1. Is this is not moot then for newer
