Is there any list of exactly what patches are in test5-love3?

Looking at the patch itself, I was able to extract the following:

VESAFB Refresh Rate Change Patch v0.1.5
Supermount removable media support
gcc 3.4/3.3-hammer support
Opcode checker
CFQ, or complete fairness queueing, disk scheduler
Reiser4 (EXPERIMENTAL very fast general purpose filesystem)
Reiser4 Syscall patch
Futex locks

Is this a complete list?


add:
Nick Piggin's Scheduling policy v15
OOM killer policy patch
ICC patch

remove:
Syscall patch (not needed anymore)

I'll do a more complete list went I get -love4 out the door, since I'm planning to merge a few -mm patches.

Where can I get hold of the futex locks patch and gcc-3.4/3.3-hammer patch on their own?

I'm still trying to figure out why canna only works on love-sources. I can't see it being related to any of the others, so I figure to try each of those one at a time and see which one makes a difference.

Luckily Andrew Morton provided a few split pltches for these after I included them in -love (I merged them by hand from an email so I didn't do split patches)

Futex patches:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test5/2.6.0-test5-mm4/broken-out/futex-uninlinings.patch
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.0-test5/2.6.0-test5-mm4/broken-out/futex_lock-splitup.patch

Linus merged a better way of handling different compilers (this is the replacement for the ICC patch and some of the GCCisms)
http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.5/cset@1.1320.15.4?nav=index.html|ChangeSet@-2d

the GCC 3.4 patch basically just added -fno-unit-at-the-time to your Kernel CFLAGS so you could just add that manually if you have gcc 3.4 I can't seem to find my split patch for it but it's that simple.

Thanks for that, Lovechild.

I've tried the futex patches against a vanilla 2.6.0-test5 but with no luck. I've requested some help here with troubleshooting of this kind and will wait to see if I get any response before continuing. I've also asked another question about removing nptl here. If you know the answer to that, I'd be much obliged.
