There isn't a newer one on the ftp site, as the latest version is
still sitting on my hard drive.

I've been making all the changes discussed on linux-kernel, debugging
the code, and updating it to v2.1.14. Because of this hacking, the patch
is currenly not bootable (heck, it doesn't yet compile), and I'd prefer
not to release it in this state. I'll announce the new version of the
patch (probably pnp_patch-2.1.14a) when it is available.

Functionally (the big picture) it will still be the same patch though.
