1) A small bug fix in drivers/usb/storage/maxtor_onetouch.c
2) Increasing the initrd size from 10M to 11M
3) Some change in include/config/nls/iso8859/15.h and
It looks like the GPL sources for R76 have a romfs.tgz file in them
which contains the complete root filesystem full of all the proprietary
The included RedBoot sources still contain the hardware reset upgrade
mode (once and for all rejecting the notion that Linksys might have
removed this from recent devices) and the upslug2 upgrade protocol.
So it look like an Unslung upgrade is technically possible. What that
would achieve is debatable, since the kernel changes are so few.
