-stable: Linux 2.6.18.3

Nov 20, 2006, 13:00 (0 Talkback[s])

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.18.3 kernel.

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between 2.6.18.2 and 2.6.18.3, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.18.y git tree can be found at:
       git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.18.y.git and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
       www.kernel.org/git/

thanks,
-chris
