-stable: Linux 2.6.14.6 Released

Jan 09, 2006, 13:45 (1 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Chris Wright)

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.14.6 kernel. This flushes the outstanding 2.6.14-stable queue.

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between 2.6.14.5 and 2.6.14.6, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.14.y git tree can be found at:
       rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/chrisw/linux-2.6.14.y.git and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
       www.kernel.org/git/

thanks,
-chris
