Hi all,

I've uploaded linux-2.0.5-2.0.6.diffs.gz to ftp.fnet.fr where it will appear
in /linux-mips/src/kernel/v2.0/ as soon as the admins have moved the file
online.  The patch does the following:

  - Removes support for building with the a.out tools.  Binutils 2.7 has buggy
    MIPS a.out support and I don't see a point in supporting this further.
    Instead I've written a small program mkboot which is essentially a
    converter from ELF to a.out.  Benefit is that you won't need to upgrade
    your Milo.

  - Along with the switch to the ELF compiler I've removed the entire a.out
    support in both GCC and Binutils.  The configuration names mips*-*-linux*
    now are all ELF configurations.  Binutils have additional COFF support
    for the sake of the DECstation port.  I changed the preprocessor so that
    it now predefines the same symbols as the the SGI configuration, so
    you'll need this new tools to build the kernel.

  - About half of the R3000 patches that I've received have been integrated.

  - The kernel now includes a essentially rewritten Sonic driver for the
    Jazz machines.

  - The hacked lance32 driver now supports the RM200.

  - After some cleanup kernels can now be shared between Acer PICA and RM200.

  - some things more ...

  Ralf
