I was personally very much looking forward to it so that I can easily
switch between 2.2 and 2.4 kernels with a new firewall box I'm building.
if there is not much real interest in it and the port does not happen
I can certainly manage, but I was hoping to be able to avoid
maintaining 2 different sets of rsbac utilities and have the CAP
management modules available for 2.2..

this is certainly a worthy argument for considering dropping the 2.2

guess it's time to start testing a 2.4 kernel on the new box..
