Changelog for uml-patch-2.4.18-8.bz2
Release Date : Mar 18 2002
Released By : jdike
Added a null channel which acts a lot like /dev/null.
Made UML robust in the face of tmpfs running out of space and sending
SIGBUS when unbacked pages are touched.
Changed the connection protocol to uml_switch so that it is versioned and
also so that uml_switch determines the data socket and passes it back to
UML. This requires the new uml_switch, so grab the new utilities tarball
as well as this patch.
Changed the assignment of an eth device's MAC so that it is set temporarily
to fe:fd:0:0:0:0 until it gets an IP, at which point, it is changed to
a MAC generated from that IP. This allows the interface to be brought up
before an IP is assigned without the driver complaining.
Added the ability for the command line to remove a device with 'device=none'.
Updated the mconsole help string.
Fixed the mconsole reaction to a too-large request. Also added a
version mismatch check.
Bumped HZ to 52 to make it divisible by 4 so that qdisc will build.
