Just a quick note. Loulwa received a kernel panic this morning when rebooting with patch #5 U3. I was unable to look at the panic message (it was related to the VFS) she got earlier and I've not received such a panic on my machine with the patch applied. If you do happen to patch with #5 U3 can you tell me what architecture you patched on and booted with and if you got a panic (and any other information you could gather associated with the panic) or not. It's my intention to test this code on as many platforms as possible, but I'm really short on time at the moment.
