The latest ia64 kernel patch is available here:


Note that this patch retains support for the Microsoft-encumbered SPCR
and DBGP ACPI tables, even though they have been removed from 2.4.19.
I'd like to remove this soon, though.



- 2.4.19 changes, just as a heads up:
  - Support for HCDP (DIG64 Headless Console Debug Port) added.
  - Support for SPCR & DBGP (CONFIG_SERIAL_ACPI) was removed from
    2.4.19.  I kept it in the ia64 patch because some people still
    rely on it, but I'd like to remove it eventually.
