Well, 2.0.2 is out, and the patches are much more reasonably sized this time.
Some of the 2.0.1 patches got revoced, and some of them got just re-massaged
to a better format.. This kernel should make the serial lines behave again,
and it also fixes a few long-standing networking problems (why, oh why, do
these problems always have to be found just after releasing a new kernel? ;)

2.0.2 also changes some file descriptor handling: our behaviour when we ran
out of file descriptors was not very nice: open(.., O_TRUNC|O_CREAT) could
return EMFILE and still make changes to the filesystem despite that. Oops.
Thanks for the people at Unifix for pointing this out (and you can blame any
problems at me, I made a different patch than theirs..)

Also some smbfs fixes from Yuri, long filenames should be stabler. TCP fix
from Alexey, and Ted's secure TCP numbers are in too (I thought they were
just a nice feature, but Alan tells me they actually fixed a bug too ;)
