Linux 2.6.39 -rc6

May 04, 2011, 17:01 (0 Talkback[s])

"Most of the stuff here no normal user will ever really notice (like the ARM kprobes series), and most of the rest is the usual one-liner random driver stuff.

"But we had one really interesting bug that showed itself as an RCU failure on UP, which turned out to be due to a scheduler problem, which in turn turned out to be a timer initialization issue. That was interesting and rather obscure.

"But most of it is just pretty random. Some media updates, some NFS work, some drm fixes, documentation, etc. Pretty small, and the bugs have been pretty obscure on the whole. We're still chasing some stuff down, but I think we're ok for -rc6. This isn't going to be the final -rc, but it doesn't seem to be in bad shape, and people who have posted regression reports please check them again, and people who haven't, please do give it a test."
