Thanks a lot. :-)

Ah, I'm sorry about the subject and the extra work it caused, it was 
meant for DaveM only, didn't realize at that time it would be 
meaningful to you as well, thus couldn't warn you back then... Testing on 
top of mm would be (/ have been) fine as well... From my point of view 
both mm and net-2.6.24 are pretty much the same (I even verified that 
those patches apply fine on top of rc8-mm2 since I thought that you might 
want to use that one).
