IMHO you should get out a 0.9.1final and sync the stock kernel before...
If and only IF 1.0 will change the IOP again I don't want to see it all
in stock 2.4.0 - the stable series should stay backward compatible.
Otherwise:  just relese 1.0 and send the diffs to Alan and Linus - if
they think you changes are ok they will merge it.

Vendors interested in having 1.0 in their kernels will put it in anyway.

Of course it doesn't work. We've performed a software upgrade.
