Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.0-test5

Sep 09, 2003, 00:40 (0 Talkback[s]) Mirrors

Full Changelog

Lots of small stuff, as usual. I think the biggest "core" change is the Futex changes by Jamie and Hugh, and the dev_t preparations by Al Viro.

But there are ARM and ppc updates here too, and a few drivers have bigger fixes (tg3 driver and the USB gadget interface stand out on diffstat). Watchdog driver updates etc. And Russell King fixed more PCMCIA issues.
