Definitely so. I'm still getting lots of reports about Send queue out of order,
which is a pretty nasty item, and several double lock on device queue customers.
Also two batches of reports with common themes

o panics/crashes/oopses with DE4x5 driver
o Cycles of socket destroy delayed with the PCMCIA network drivers. Im
suspicious it may be a driver bug this time.

I think pre Linux Kongress will be a final pre release not a 2.0
