Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.14-rc2-mm2

Sep 30, 2005, 03:15 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.14-rc2/2.6.14-rc2-mm2/

(temp copy at http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/2.6.14-rc2-mm2.gz)

  • A bunch of memory management updates
  • The big pcmcia changes have been temporarily dropped
  • Multiple obscure tty drivers still won't compile
  • Lots of post-2.6.14-rc2-mm1 patches have been cheerfully tossed out again due to various bugs, which felt nice.
  • I am offline until October 9. Please send critical 2.6.14 fixes direct to Linus.

Changes since 2.6.14-rc2-mm1:
