It fit happily into the "noone is willing to maintain kb25" cliche.
BTW, I think I will release a patch against linux 0.01 which will
introduce all the features of the current linus tree in a few minutes. Why
calling it linux 2.5.19? It has the features! Yet I'm patching it, if you
want piecemeal, grab the list.

I split it so that you can merge some stuff in and it has no effect. You
can even merge the whole thing in with no effect as long as you're using
the old Makefile,v 2.4.

I'm not exactly german. I'm in germany, currently, but what does it tell
you? And before you ask, I never answer questions about my nationality.
And anyway, they don't belong to linux-kernel in any way.
For the most features you'll at first need the core, or you merge it in,
and later pull it from the kernel again to introduce it with core support.
Diffing into every single feature _can_ be done, but I'll be kicked off
the list if I post them one by one.

It's more or less because it is quite silly to post every single feature,
and lethal for kernel development on this list.

See my statement about linux-0.01.
