Hi all,

I've uploaded two new kernel patches to ftp.fnet.fr; 1.3.98 will be
of special interest because it does a big cleanup in the sources.  As
I alrready have posted the board specific sources are now in extra
subdirectories in arch/mips/.  1.3.98 now also can handle the
bigger SysV

  typedef struct {
          int __sigbits[4];
  } sigset_t;

correctly.  Due to extra fields that already had been reserved in
struct sigaction for this extension most userland binaries have
survived this change; the only exception should be binaries that we're
compiled using the old sigset_t defined in <asm/signal.h> directly.

Linux/MIPS 1.3.98 also features support for SNI RM200 PCI, some
changes to the low level memory management code to adapt it to the
"real world R4600" and last, not least, Wayne's G364 console for Magnum
4000/Olivetti M700.  Still without cursor & colour but more important
without crashes ...

For booting Linux/MIPS on a RM200 you'll need a tuned Milo version 0.26;
I've sent my patches to Stoned.

   Ralf
