I compiled a new generation kernel (2.2.2) and done some trial with muLinux.
Many tools simply don't work (route, ipfwadm, loadlin, etc) and
some recompilation activity is needed.

But the major problem is the size: about additional 100k and more RAM
engaged. This kernel don't work on 386/4M, I believe.

Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
