My SysRQ Registration patch now is at version 0.9, and it is still available at: http://bama.ua.edu/~dunna001/sysrq-register/

It now patchs Documentation/sysrq.txt as well, and there are some example modules which are a pretty good starting place to learn to code sysrq events.

(Just checked, still Lame).

I have the damn thing working on 2.2.16, 2.2.17, 2.4.0-test9, and 2.4.0-test10-pre9.

I also rewrote it to have a much more robust registration system. It no longer looks like a hack.

I am pleased, but still lame.

it is available at http://bama.ua.edu/~dunna001/sysrq-register/

Okay, so I have done something that is almost not lame, though I spent so much time doing it, that it stays lame.

I've hacked registration into sysrq in the linux kernel.

I've got it ported to 2.2.16, 2.2.17, and 2.4.0-pre9, and I am in the process of final testing and polishing before I start bugging people on the kernel mailing list about it. I really think it's useful.


Lameness continues. I am attempting to polish my first usefull kernel patch for public consumption. The enormous span between "Holy Shit, It Works!", and "Pretty and Robust enough to let others see it" is getting to me.

Ps. I have become convinced that KDE is a complex german plot to annoy the rest of the world. I have evedince.
