Hi, Greg -

The latest set of klibc work is all accessible from

Here's a brief description of each part.  The patches are as independent
as possible, and are in BitKeeper format.

      * ipconfig-2.5.69.patch removes ipconfig from the kernel, and
        prevents CONFIG_ROOT_NFS from working.
      * nfsroot-2.5.69.patch removes nfsroot from the kernel.
      * initramfs-2.5.69.patch (requires the nfsroot patch) stops
        do_mounts from doing anything if the kernel is passed
        root=/dev/nfs or root=initramfs.  This is a stopgap until the
        rest of the junk in init/do_mounts gets moved to userspace.
      * klibc-2003-05-22.tar.bz2 is the latest CVS snapshot of the klibc
      * kinit-2003-05-22.bin is a kinit executable, which you can drop
        into usr after applying the initramfs patch above, rebuild the
        kernel, reboot with root=/dev/nfs, and boot over NFS.

I'll send along the kernel patches as individual attachments.
