Mostly true.  But, Chris Wright and I did make two small changes
lately.  They work fine for me, but that's not the same as having 30
or 40 people try it on different systems.  Since this version *may*
wind up going into 2.6.11 or 2.6.12, I really *would* like for more
people to test it.

The politics is important, too.  It wouldn't hurt for us to
demonstrate to the kernel developers that a number of us really do
care about this feature.  Lee and Paul and I have been hammering the
point home, but a few more voices would not hurt.

Lee is right about -mm kernels.  Don't try it if you aren't
comfortable working with development kernels.  Most likely, nothing
bad will happen to your system.  But, there could be problems with
certain devices or configurations.  Reporting them to the kernel
developers is a bit help.  But, don't run it in any production
