There was a large amount of bits and pieces that were missed 
from the release of FC1 -> 2.4.23 release, which I've been trying
to get merged as painlessly as possible. (Ie, not integrating
netdriver updates with networking updates at the same time --
this way works out easier to track things down if there's
a networking regression).

This coupled with 2-3 security updates made it quite a busy time
over the last few weeks. Things should start to slow down real soon.
The current kernel in -testing (2154) has a large number of the
remaining 2.4.23->2.4.25 changes.

Additionally, as we get closer to FC2, I'm focusing more on getting
that in shape than updating the FC1 kernel.

It's a CVS ident. It gets bumped with each cvs checkin I do.
