I would prefer GMP kernel to be included quickly too (a big pending
patch creates a lot of hesitation when planning patches).  On the
other hand, I would not be able to patch for a month ;-).

There is another possibility: release 2.2.5 "as is", and immediately
apply big patches to CVS.

This is addressed in my sizeof(long) patch.

will send it as is...]
