Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.16-rc1-mm4

Jan 30, 2006, 02:30 (1 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Andrew Morton)

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.16-rc1/2.6.16-rc1-mm4/

  • New git tree `git-davej-x86.patch': misc x86 things, maintained by David Jones.
  • Lots of USB updates. Please be sure to Cc: linux-usb-devel@lists.sourceforge.net if something broke.
  • Various other random bits and pieces. Things have been pretty quiet lately - most activity seems to be concentrated about putting bugs into the various subsystem trees.
  • If you have a patch in -mm which you think should go into 2.6.16, it doesn't hurt to remind me. There's quite a lot here which will go into 2.6.16.

Changes since 2.6.16-rc1-mm3:
