    I can't see any kernel patches for the 2.4.x kernels in CVS.
    What is in CVS? Is it a whole 2.4.x kernel? How difficult
    would it be to 'transplant' the patch in to a 2.6.x kernel?

    Tobias Netzel implemented preliminary support for 2.6.x.
    However it is still in a early development phase and *not* usable.
    There is no definitive plan to release yet.
