I started from the Luca Bigliardi's patch (downloaded from uml.org) and
applied on 2.6.0-9 kernel version, as from suggestion.
It failed to apply in different hints, but many succeded.
What I planned is:
- to see if the starting kernel source (from kernel.org) differs (and how=
differs from what expected) from what the patch supposed to expect;
- to try to produce a *clean* patch for 2.6.0;
- to try to apply the clean to 2.6.8 (since it is officially included in
Debian Sarge and to see the feasability to make it available for all);
- to see the impact on newer kernel version;
I need time. I also planned to inform of all the steps.
Happy GNU/year 2006.
