2.6.24-rc3, Small Fixes and Cleanups

Nov 18, 2007, 22:00 (0 Talkback[s])

"Linux creator Linus Torvalds announced the third release candidate for the upcoming 2.6.24 kernel summarizing, 'hmmm.. Lots of small fixes, some cleanups, and a few things like the cris updates that aren't really either, but which won't affect any normal user, and will hopefully make it easier to sync up in the future. Network driver fixes, some IDE and infiniband updates, some late cpufreq updates, and a hwmon update.' He continued:

"'On the architecture side, in addition to the afore-mentioned cris updates, there are some sh, arm, powerpc and mips updates, and also one final x86 unification cleanup (and I really mean it--the rest can wait until after 2.6.24, but with this one the x86 configuration really is fairly merged, and both i386 and x86_64 are really just special cases of the 'x86' architecture in the configurator)...'"
