puh - synchronised with the realese 2.4.26 and no warnings of bugtraq or fd... 
Good work.
I imagine that everything is fixed in 2.4.26.
Does someone know if 2.4.26 is a bugfix pre-release?
I'm getting a little bit confused right know, if there are serious issue with 
the kernel, why wasn't there any earlier release of 2.4.26?

Refering to the large number of fixed vuln, might an earlier release of single 
patches has been an option? Or did you watch fd to find the right time?

Keep smiling
