Yeah, it's here in the commit titled "Import 2.3.52pre3" (takes a second
or two to load):

https://github.com/mpe/linux-fullhistory/commit/a1bcda3256956318c95c8da8bee09f79190bb034#diff-fd2d793b8b4760b4887c8c7bbb3451d7R1730

But no further detail.

(Instructions for using that tree https://github.com/mpe/linux-fullhistory/wiki)
