Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.19-rc5

Nov 08, 2006, 13:00 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)

Ok, things are finally calming down, it seems.

The -rc5 thing is mainly a few random architecture updates (arm, mips, uml, avr, power) and the only really noticeable one there is likely some fixes to the local APIC accesses on x86, which apparently fixes a few machines.

The rest is really mostly one-liners (or close) to various subsystems. New PCI ID's, trivial fixes, cifs, dvb, things like that. I'm feeling better about this - there may be a -rc6, but maybe we don't even need one.

As usual, thanks to everybody who tested and chased down some of the regressions,
       Linus
