The biggest change in this kernel over the older ones

that benefits from being able to have more address
space, you can use the -hugemem kernel to run with
4g/4g again. The regular non-hugemem kernels have
the traditional 3:1 split.
Is the fix for the b44 issue
incorporated into the kernels yet?
You had a comment indicating that Pekka's fix is in CVS (Comment #69),
but I had not seen it mentioned in the changelogs for these last couple
of kernel updates. Is the comment referring to Linus' CVS or Fedora's?
Also, does the change in the 4g/4g status influence the b44 fix?
