Linux v2.5.45

From: Linus Torvalds (
Date: Wed Oct 30 2002 - 19:56:29 EST

Big changes, lots of merges. A number of the merges are fairly
substantial too.

Device mapper (LVM2), crypto/ipsec stuff for networking, epoll and giving
the new kernel configurator a chance. Big things.

And a _lot_ of maintenance, from various architecture updates to USB and
ISDN and ALSA. Merges with Andrew & Alan etc.. Go out and test,



Summary of changes from v2.5.44 to v2.5.45 ============================================

<>: o The following patch adds support for ethtool to the ewrk3 driver. It is against 2.5-BK but should apply to any recent 2.5 and 2.4 as well. In addition to adding ethtool support, it also removes the cli/sti fixup attribution from the changelog since that didn't actually go in yet and fixes a small style issue I introduced in the multi-card support patch. o This patch adds some locking fixups to the ewrk3 ioctl routine. None of these are critical since the ioctls AFAIK are used only by the EEPROM config utility. o Last ewrk3 update for now. Updates the changelog to cover previous patches, bumps the revision number, and replaces the horrific EthwrkSignature function with something (slightly) less horrific. o sd.c major number off-by-one
