-stable: Linux 2.6.16.11

Apr 25, 2006, 13:45 (0 Talkback[s])

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.16.11 kernel (because just one -stable kernel a day is obviously not enough...)

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 2.6.16.10 and 2.6.16.11, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.16.y git tree can be found at:

rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.16.y.git

and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:

www.kernel.org/git/

thanks,

greg k-h
