Linux 3.0 -rc4

Jun 21, 2011, 21:00 (0 Talkback[s])

" Mostly the usual small driver one- (or few-) liners, and some bigger changes to drm (and md). But also two new smallish drivers (net/usb/kalmia.c, and the ADP8870 backlight driver). Some filesystem fixes (btrfs, cifs, afs, xfs, nfsd).

"And a couple of performance regressions: rcu doesn't need threads (and avoiding them fixes a performance problem under certain loads) and the conversion from spinlocks to mutexes for the anon_vma locking ended up causing a scalability issue that required fixing."
