	Sooner I can lay my hands on that the better.  I need to roll this
usb-cdc-acm performance patch into that and get it on a box with several
ISDN modems.  The whole upgrade to 2.6.14rc2 seems to be a real mess
(re: thread I'm in the middle of over on fedora-devel over the kudzu
catch-22).  As soon as that's available, I'll try giving it a hammering.

	One BIG question...

	This is vis-a-vis the kudzu conflict vs 2.6.13 kernels being beat on
over on the fedora-devel list.  On what side of the fence will this kernel fall?  Does it conflict with the kudzu currently with
the 2.6.12 kernels?  Will this kernel provide us with a
stepping stone past the kernel <-> kudzu catch-22 critical dependency?
The 2.6.13-1.1567 kernel (which is really the 2.6.14rc2 kernel)
conflicts with the existing kudzu.  The kudzu from rawhide conflicts
with any kernel < 2.6.13.  Sooo...  Is it real or is it memorex?  Is it
really < 2.6.13 or is it really < 2.6.14rc2?  What happens in the
boundary condition we appear to be approaching?
