Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.18-rc2

Jul 17, 2006, 13:45 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

Ok, there it is, in all the usual places.

I think the bulk of it are some MIPS and UML updates, along with a e1000 driver update, but there's various more random things, including just lots of cleanups.

The shortlog is pretty readable, so without further ado, here it is:
