The most recent 2.4 patch for ia64 is here:

    ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/ports/ia64/v2.4/linux-2.4.26-ia64-040510.diff.bz2

I haven't been producing 2.4 patches recently because I don't
think anyone would actually use them.

My assumption is that most people using 2.4 kernels on ia64 are
running distro kernels, and distros are only interested in backports
of specific bugfixes, not in ia64 patches for new 2.4 kernels.

If my assumption is incorrect, and somebody does care about new
ia64 patches for 2.4, please speak up!
