Yes, that is the one I took. Just to make sure, I downloaded it again (and
the linux-2.6.26-rc5 tree) and now it works. When I compare the two patchsets
the one I pulled this morning had patches from 7 June and this one has more
and they are from 11th June.

Thanks a lot for your help, at last I now have all the patches and can go
on with testing.

Thanks,
Holger
