They are still valid, we just have more knowledge about how to
configure the kernels and have added some features you can
use to mitigate the performance issues.  The Linux 2.6 kernel
is simply bigger than 2.4, and on these small, resource challenged
processors, you need to very carefully configure the kernels to
your requirements.
