We need another release. It turns out that the i386 compilation was
broken since Linux 2.6.31. The code assumed that Linux 2.6.31 and newer
export cmpxchg8b() on i386, but it wasn't true for any kernel version.
To anticipate future compile errors, I checked compilation with the
current linux-next branch, which includes changes scheduled for the
future kernels. Everything was fine for i386 and x86_64.
I made a change to satisfy realtime kernels distributed by Ubuntu. They
don't have init_MUTEX.
There is one big thing that needs to be done. It's porting the
configuration from Wireless Extension to cfg80211. Linux 2.6.33 will
disable wireless extensions unless some old wireless driver is enabled
(e.g. ipw2100). That will surely result in user complaints. But that
effort is better done in a separate release.
