Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.15-rc5

Dec 05, 2005, 15:15 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

There's a rc5 out there now, largely because I'm going to be out of email contact for the next week, and while I wish people were religiously testing all the nightly snapshots, the fact is, you guys don't.

So making the current state available as an -rc makes sense, even though not a lot has changed since -rc4.

That said, if you didn't test -rc4 either--shame on you, and please do test -rc5.

The diffstat says "4562 insertions(+), 4997 deletions(-)" since -rc4, but the bulk of those (by far) are the mips defconfig updates (and the removal of the sk98lin-specific hw checksum verifier, which the networking layer is better at anyway).

So pretty much all of this is various one-liners etc, many of them in V4L.

Shortlog and diffstat appended.
