Ack.

I don't even know whether anybody ever tried to run Xenomai over 2.4/x86
anyway, and I don't think this would ever make sense to do so today, so
2.4.35 will be removed.

2.6.29.4 will go away as well, since 2.6.30.8 and 2.6.31.1 have been
fixed, and hopefully, 2.6.33/86 will be supported in a foreseeable
future.

In any case, the README in the patches/ directory clearly states 
that adventurous people may try other options available from
http://download.gna.org/adeos/patches/
