Yay! Thank you so much. But I will feel safer when the patch is here too :)
I had to chmod my way and change the umask of the ftpd (killing the old one)
so that your files would be world-readable by other ftp users...

Don't post here. Just upload to my site and post the path here.

I can't really tell, but the main hub for this kind of information is

They want something that's clean enough to not mess with their own stuff;
and stable enough because they don't have time to integrate minor releases
for all the zillions of ARM boards out there.
And they mightn't care much for integrating stuff into 2.4,
since active development is now mainly on the 2.6 tree.
Now, that's my understanding and things might be different;
in doubt, ask them. If you're deep into kernel hacking,
subscribing to their mailing-list can be good, anyway.
