Thanks for the UML patch!! Your message got bounced from the list
because it was bigger than 40K. For some reason, I didn't get an
administrative message asking if I wanted to accept or reject it.
Anyway, I got your patch and John Byrne integrated it into the 0.6.0
release. It will be available tommorrow, as part of the big SSI patch in
the release tarball.
Note that some of the changes you made to the non-UML files (to make
sure they build correctly when CONFIG_SSI is turned off) were done in a
different way by John. Whenever practical, we're trying to avoid
sprinkling #ifdef's in the base files. I've heard Linus doesn't like
them. Anyway, take a look at the release, and give John and I any
feedback you might have.
I've attached your UML installation instructions for reference, but I'm
not sure they'll work quite right anymore. I've made some significant
changes to Cluster Tools. You and I can hammer out some new
instructions, and post a current version on the website at a later date.
We can also post a patch, if anything got broken during integration.
