I've just released a brand-new gentoo-sources kernel. Desktop users
will like this kernel because it is very very fast and include both the
lowlatency *and* preempt patches. Server people will like this kernel
because it contains a number of nice security-related patches like
grsecurity, freeswan (ipsec) and cryptoapi. Please note that this
kernel has no XFS in it. I was able to really enhance this kernel
because I didn't have the huge XFS patch to get in the way. A full
description of the patches included follows:
# 2.4.19-pre7-ac2 (with a fix for an ACPI compile problem)
# grsecurity-1.9.4 (with a fix for NVIDIA compile problem)
# htb2 (QoS support)
# 1000 HZ patch
# from jp10 (http://www.infolinux.de/jp10):
# from aa:
# 00_3.5G-address-space-4 (from Andrea Archangeli)

Update: Since the original post, revision 3 of the gentoo-sources has been released (gentoo-sources-2.4.19-r3). This revision includes XFS official release code, and XFS support has been added to the kernel.
