I patched the kernel with your pre-patch-2.1.36 and then rebooted. So far
everything is running okay. The patch did not patch cleanly in:
linux/net/ipv4/arp.c. I was not able to figure it out, there
were as many lines in arp.c.rej as there was in arp.c.orig. Therefore,
I just used the original and altered it for the change in the ATOMIC_INIT
macro. If you want my kernel to be exactly like yours for testing, put
arp.c on your server and I'll download it. Otherwise, what I've got seems
to work okay.
