Why no new laptopkernels?

Many of you have asked if there will be updated laptop-kernels in the future.
Probably there won't. Nearly everything that was part of the laptopkernel is now part of the main kernels (in 2.4 and in 2.6).
Only things left are software suspend and supermount. As they are not really laptop specific and you can easiliy patch them yourself, we see no need for any further versions of laptopkernel.
We suggest all laptopkernel-users to upgrade to the latest 2.4-pre-versions or to 2.6-test-kernels.
