Subject: 2.6.9-r4 marked unstable (~mips)
Date: Sat, 27 Nov 2004 07:45:36 -0500
For those users running unstable (ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~mips"), I've marked 
mips-sources-2.6.9-r4 as unstable.  Those running Indy/Indigo2-class systems, 
be wary, as this specific kernel version didn't stay up too long for me on my 
Indy, but that was a bootcd kernel, and it probably had bugs.  If IP22 users 
get it to run for several days, then it's probably just my end.

IP32, IP30, and Cobalt users should have no problems running this kernel. 
IP30 (Octane) users need to include "ip30" in their USE flags in order for the 
ebuild to apply the Octane patch.  Cobalt users will need to include "cobalt" 
in their USE as well, but the Cobalt profiles should do this already.  When in 
doubt, check your `emerge info` output and see what USE flags are set.

This specific revision also includes several security fixes, including the new 
CAN-2004-0883 (smbfs bug) fix, and a fix for a mips-specific ptrace vuln.

Users running stable setups probably don't want to play with this kernel 
unless they know what they are doing.  </disclaimer>

Questions, comments, flames, and ice cubes welcome as replies to this message 
or on IRC in #gentoo-mips.
