I would have to disagree with that.  After upgrading a number of Sparc 5s
I run form the 2.2 series kernel to 2.4.8, I would swear performance
improved to a noticible degree. Not to mention its easier to impliment
lots of the new features that would require a kernel patch for the 2.2

Anyways, (although I posted this to the list already) you can grab a
tarball of my (sparc-32-working) Linux 2.4.8 source at
http://home.att.ne.jp/iota/joe/ -- I have had very good luck with it so

Hope that helps,
