README NOTES:

Due to the fact that the upstream kernel didn't quite work on basic rx1600 box (the one w/o MC), there has been two kernels. The official CentOS-4 one and the one i have patched to work on above mentioned box.

I do myself have such boxen, so i need it myself.

So if you have installed on such box, be carefull about the update process. Make sure you get the one from centosplus and not the stock one.

I've personally ran this kernel-2.6.9-5.0.5.105.EC myself now couple hours while building the rest of the stuff. As the side effect, the *EC* kernels does have XFS enabled as it has JFS too (JFS won't work on ia64 with default page size tho). The side effect being that i do have myself a unified codebase and this kernel is used on ppc32 too, so there is some extra features in it for ia64 too because of that.

If you're still reading, the plan would be to release 4.1/U1 w/o modified kernel as there is installation/update path for those whom might need the modified kernel from the initial release.
