This patch is largely a bunch of driver changes.
There is now a 'null' channel, which lets you attach a console or serial line
to something that acts a lot like /dev/null.
Similarly, it is now possible from the command line to remove a device with
The uml_switch protocol has changed, as I mentioned yesterday. You will need
the new uml_switch, which is available from the current utilities tarball.
There were some mconsole driver cleanups.
Changed the assignment of an eth device's MAC so that it is set temporarily
to fe:fd:0:0:0:0 until it gets an IP, at which point, it is changed to
a MAC generated from that IP.
Also, UML is now robust in the face of tmpfs running out of space and sending
SIGBUS when unbacked pages are touched.
HZ is now 52.
