Release 1.3 of kernel build for kernel 2.5 (kbuild 2.5) is available., Package kbuild-2.5, download
release 1.3.
contains information about the base release.

Changes from Release 1.2

Upgrade to kernel 2.4.10.

Split arch/$(ARCH)/Makefile.defs into Makefile.defs.noconfig and
Makefile.defs.config, the latter can only be processed after .config
has been read. i386 and ia64 done, more to come.

arch_core_subdirs is gone, it uses link_subdirs like everything else.

scripts/ to report on which files are shadowed and at which

Ensure that make install uses the same KERNELRELEASE as the build,

Assorted bug fixes.

Expect a kbuild 2.5 patch for 2.4.9-ia64-010820 in the next few days,
and a patch for 2.4.10-ac after 2.4.10-ac1 is released.
