Pulling patches from a newer kernel
All,

In the new pre-patches (2.4.20) for the kernel,
Intel has begun to work with the Kernel team and
is starting to statically link their drivers into
our beloved OS.

However, 2.4.20 is still a work in progress and I
don't feel that it is stable enough to run on my
production servers, however I want to build in
Intel e1000 support into my current 2.4.18 kernel.

Is there a way that I can pull the drivers and pieces
of the Makefile from 2.4.20 and append that to my
current 2.4.18 configs?

What is involved?
