Andrew Morton: Linux 2.6.17-rc6-mm1

  • Many more lockdep updates

Boilerplate:

  • See the `hot-fixes' directory for any important updates to this patchset.
  • To fetch an -mm tree using git, use (for example)

    git fetch git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/smurf/linux-trees.git v2.6.16-rc2-mm1

  • -mm kernel commit activity can be reviewed by subscribing to the mm-commits mailing list.

    echo "subscribe mm-commits" | mail majordomo@vger.kernel.org

  • If you hit a bug in -mm and it is not obvious which patch caused it, it is most valuable if you can perform a bisection search to identify which patch introduced the bug. Instructions for this process are at

    http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/bisecting-mm-trees.txt

    But beware that this process takes some time (around ten rebuilds and reboots), so consider reporting the bug first and if we cannot immediately identify the faulty patch, then perform the bisection search.

  • When reporting bugs, please try to Cc: the relevant maintainer and mailing list on any email.
