Yes, we did.  I am working on it, as you would know if you read my
posts to the mailing list (I cross posted to your mailing list as
well).  It's going to take time to merge the patches together into a
form that is suitable for Alan and Linus, I'm sorry I'm not going fast
enough for you.  Work in progress is available for people to comment on.

The fact remains however that 2.4.3 contains equivalent code to Beta
level 2 (+ a couple of tidy ups from Andrea Arcangeli), and beta7 is
the version of the code that I would recommend people use - this
includes the user land tools, for which we will continue to use CVS as
the main repository.

Of course, I hope to send a patch set to Alan at the end of Wednesday.
