Thanks. Boy a HEADSUP letting people know that it was fixed would have
been strongly appreciated. I was affected and I've been CVSupping and
rebuilding regularly and hadn't seen the fix until after I saw the curt
- read UPDATING message. At that point my UPDATING still didn't have
the message above despite the fact that I'd been updating once or twice
a day since Monday. I know it only affected a minority, but busted
kernel module loading is a big deal.
Just a minor venting. Thanks for all the good work.
