Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.18-rc7

Sep 13, 2006, 03:00 (4 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

Ok, ok, don't rub it in. I know I thought -rc6 would be the last one, but I just feel more comfy doing an -rc7, even if most of the changes are pretty minor.

This adds some some arm, sh64 and ia64 archictecture updates. In drivers, we've got some dvb and usb fixes (with a few small mmc and ide fixes thrown in too). Add some audit fixes, and CIFS and XFS updates to round it all up.
     Linus
