Upcoming kernel build
 
We're doing something a little special for the next rawhide kernel.
There is an ongoing bug regarding gcc and compiling the kernel, which
leads to ext3 failures.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=451068

In order to have a working kernel, but not make gcc go backwards by
untagging it while the gcc folks are working out a fix, I've created a
special buildroot to put the old gcc back into service so that we can
build the kernel and move beyond the ext3 issues. This will be a short
lived buildroot, only used by the kernel, so that we have something
working for the next few days (somewhat critical given FUDCon).

This is not something we normally do, but I wanted to announce it up
front so that everybody knows whats going on.

Cheers!

Yey, kernel compiler is back!!! :-)

(I remember those days when on Debian lists we had to explain to
all former Red Hat users, that no, you don't need special
compiler just for kernel ;-)).

Hhaha. Well due to FUDCon fun, I had forgotten to actually tag the
build we did on the side, so the newly built kernel won't actually show
up until tomorrow. Whoops.
