First of all nobody ever claimed it was suitable for production systems.

Second I told you the stuff applied cleanly and i can prove it:

  - Applying linux-2.2.13-acl-0.5.5d.patch.gz to pristine linux-2.2.13
    tree:  no rejects.

  - Applying linux-2.2.14-acl-0.5.6-pre100.patch.gz to pristine linux-2.2.14
    tree:  no rejects.

  - Applying linux-2.2.14-acc-0.6.0-pre8.patch.gz to pristine linux-2.2.14
    tree:  no rejects.

And i have a 2.2.15pre17 kernel working with the 2.2.14-acc-0.6.0 patch
applied: it works exactly as documented.

So what the hell are you talking about? And since you did not (up until
now) bother to report exactely what went wrong on your side, there is no
way i can help you. And given the attitude your post shows, i am very
reluctant to offer you further assistance ...
