Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.17

Jun 18, 2006, 22:30 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

Not a lot of changes since the last -rc, the bulk is actually some last-minute MIPS updates and s390 futex changes, the rest tend to be various very small fixes that trickled in over the last week.

Have fun with it,
       Linus
