I've just released Linux 2.4.36-pre2.

Basically, it gets in sync with, and adds DMA support for
2 PCI IDE chipsets (ICH7 and JMicron 20363).

There's just the adutux driver pending before 2.4.36. I plan to issue
2.4.36-rc1 in about 2-3 weeks (first week of december), and -final the
following week if nothing goes wrong till there.

The patch and changelog will appear soon at the following locations:
