This is an early release version that enables common CGL and DCL
development. It is in two pieces: a common subset for CGL and DCL,
and a separate patch for CGL-only stuff. The generic patches are for
enhancements that are yet to make the mainline kernel but are requested
by both Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) and Data Center Linux (DCL).
The CGL-only patch applies after the first one (OSDL patch) and has
enhancements that are applicable mostly to carrier-grade
The latest release is available in downloadable patches from
or public BitKeeper repositories

Common code + CGL: bk://bk.osdl.org/linux-2.5-cgl

The kernel compiles and runs on an SMP system. It passes the basic
tests but has not been extensively stress-tested yet.

This kernel has been built and run on a small set of machines, SMP
and UP. Testers are encouraged to exercise the features. If a
problem is found, please compare the result with a standard 2.5.47
kernel. Please report any problems or successes to the mailing list.
Developers are encouraged to send any enhancements or bug fix
patches. Patches should be tested by using the OSDL Scalable Test
Platform (STP) and Patch Lifecycle Manager (PLM) facilities.
