Yeah. What he said.
I know of two problems with 2.4.0-testx kernels, both of which are fixed as of
my current CVS. One which is not my problem at all is the test8 ptrace "fix".
That totally broke UML. test8 can't run UML without backing out that change.
Linux backed it out in test9, so it's no longer a problem.
The other is the increased signal frame size over 2.2. It's about 500 bytes
bigger, and it's not hard to get three or four of them on the stack. When
that happens, and half of a 4K page is occupied by signal frames, it's a
little hard to fit everything else onto the remaining half page.
So, if you're seeing something else, you need to provide some details.
