The user-mode port of 2.4.0-test12 is finally available. It has been in CVS
for a couple of days, but SourceForge only today fixed up the site enough to
allow projects to make releases.
hostfs now mostly works. It's still somewhat buggy. It is also possible to
specify what host directory you want mounted inside the virtual machine.
The problem with linking a profiling kernel was fixed.
Several crashes were fixed.
uname -m no longer returns 'um'. It returns the underlying arch. The reason
for this is that some builds (not least the UML build itself) get confused
when they see an 'um' machine. I see no advantages to having UML returning a
different arch, so it doesn't any more.
Several bugs in the block driver were fixed. 'dd if=ubd/0 of=/dev/null' no
longer hangs, and dbench no longer produces filesystem corruption.
