First let me say that 2.4 is still considered an unstable kernel.
Montavista only supports the 2.4 kernel for a couple of arch that are
only in 2.4.  If you are looking to upgrade your kernel for a product
release, stick with 2.2.14. otherwise, always use the latest 2.4 kernel
and expect something to be broken.
