[ANNOUNCE] Linux 2.4.37.11

Hi,

I've just released Linux 2.4.37.11.

It fixes a number of minor security issues, mainly information leaks
from the kernel stack on some 64-bit architectures, or possible NULL
derefs and crashes in some less commonly used protocols (eg: econet,
x25, irda).


A build issue introduced in 2.4.37.10 when atm/clip was configured to
build as a module was fixed.

An ext3 quota bug causing occasional random panics was fixed, thanks
to a report from Sascha Umlang who also made lots of efforts to get
a debuggable capture of the issue and test the backport for two months.

Last, various MIPS-related fixes provided by Ralf Baechle were merged.

The new 2.4 EOL is now pushed to end of 2011.

Willy
