No, the kernel didn't support it till 2.6.18, iirc. But you're already
using something newer than 2.6.9, aren't you?

Since we don't have the package yet, a regression would be hard :)

40 millibits? :)


Once upon a time I was vaguely intending to make tarball releases of
that, coinciding with Linus' own releases. Mostly I've just been
ignoring it and leaving the script to its own devices though.

It's not _quite_ the same because I think it lacks version.h. You'd do
better to actually run 'make headers_install'.
