Couple of things new from 2.1.42:

- Sparc64 support.

- Genksyms takes a -p option to add a prefix to the crc of all symbols.
The intent here was to use this to distinguish SMP kernels from non-
SMP kernels.

- If COMBINE_INSMOD_RMMOD=y, insmod and rmmod will be stuck in a single
binary, taking their function from argv[0]. This is intended for use
on rescue disks and other places short of space.

And there were one or two random bug fixes as well.

Please find it at

and (shortly) other mirrors. It should also show up in the kernel
distribution areas eventually as well.
