Changelog for uml-patch-2.4.17-6.bz2

Release Date : Jan 18 2002

Released By : jdike

  • The console and serial drivers are being restructured so that they share code and data structures rather than having them copied in both drivers.
  • Started defining compatibility macros with the aim that UML can be dropped into both 2.4 and 2.5 pools.
  • The default channel initialization strings for the consoles and serial lines are now configurable. This is intended for distributors of UML so that they can disable the console xterms if they expect to install in environments that don't have X.
  • The IRQ bugs that David Mansfield noticed are fixed. This includes the one with the network not calling reactivate_fd if the allocation of an sk_buff fails.
  • Merged in some of James McMechan's ubd changes, namely the sharing of a single request queue between all major numbers controlled by the driver. Also fixed the bug with duplicate devfs entries being created.
  • The name of "root hostfs" is now "root-hostfs". This lets it be used in fstab.
  • flush_thread only calls forward_interrupts if it's running on processor 0.
  • The console and serial line drivers now use the official devfs names (vc and tts). There are symlinks left behind at ttys and serial for backward compatibility.
