Hi everybody,
it turns out that we needed yet another 2.0.x kernel, hopefully the final
one. This one fixes the following things:

- "invlpg" is used correctly. This should make the squake/xquake SIGSEGV
problem go away on Pentium/MMX machines, and should also mean that some
of the intel clones should work correctly even when compiled for
Pentium optimizations (ie some Cyrix and AMD chips that have before had
the recommendation of compiling the kernel for a i386).

- the newer and better work-around for the intel f0 0f bug, which is a
lot simpler and doesn't have any of the problems of the first one

- aic driver update - this gets rid of lock-ups for some people

- routing memory leak fix

- unix domain socket fd garbage collection security fix

- some other minor things.

So go forth, and populate the earth with 2.0.33-based machines.
