  • I'm releasing this so that Hugh's MM rework can get a spin.

    Anyone who had post-2.6.14 problems related to the VM_RESERVED changes (device drivers malfunctioning, obscure userspace hardware-poking applications stopped working, etc) please test.

    We'd especially like testing of the graphics DRM drivers across as many card types as poss.

  • cifs is busted when built as a module. Mysteriously.
  • Added the parisc devel tree to the -mm lineup as git-parisc.patch (Kyle McMartin <kyle@mcmartin.ca>)
  • Added the powerpc devel tree to the -mm lineup as git-powerpc.patch (Paul MacKerras).
  • Dropped the powerpc devel tree again due to refusal to boot. Next time for sure.
  • The JSM driver is still busted. Make sure that CONFIG_SERIAL_JSM=n
  • The UML update here is reported to cause a compile failure.
