I believe we're aiming at having a 2.2 version ready for the end of the
year -- approximately the same time as Linus expects to have a 2.4 release
out.  Updating to 2.4 shouldn't be a big problem, and we don't have to be
ready for the release of 2.4.0 -- Linus merged alpha, sparc, ppc and mips
trees at several stages after 2.2.0 was released.  (Indeed, there is a
big mips merge in the 2.2.11 prepatches.)

Don't worry about 2.4 yet :-)
