Summary:  The Linux kernel (the core of the Linux operating system)
Description: 
This package contains the Linux kernel that is used to boot and run
your system.

Most hardware drivers for this kernel are built as modules.  Some of
these drivers are built separately from the kernel; they are available
in separate packages (kernel-modules-*-ltsp-client).

The "ltsp-client" flavour of kernel packages is almost vanilla kernel
adding swap-over-net patch by Peter Zijlstra to fix networked swap
issues.

It's trimmed down towards diskless network-bootable thin clients
(e.g. ALTSP) and is rather unsuitable for anything else.

March 5, 2012 Michael Shigorin 2.6.32-alt3
- 2.6.32.58
- config-i586:
  + CONFIG_FB_*:
    - dropped all specific drivers
    - enabled uvesafb just in case
    - disabled firmware EDID
  + CONFIG_DRM_*:
    - enabled KMS for radeon by default
    - enabled nouveau and vmwgfx (drm33 staging)
  + a few more staging drivers (usbip, et131x, slicoss)

Jan. 22, 2012 Michael Shigorin 2.6.32-alt2
- patches:
  + feat-drivers-block--ramzswap (and feat-mm-swapfile--notify)
- config-i586:
  + io scheduler switched from deadline to noop
  + switch back from CONFIG_PREEMPT to CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY
    (looks like the former doesn't play nice with net-swap
    while the latter does)
- mostly led@'s advice again
