Ok. I think we're getting to the point where there are no major known
bugs. That means that as of the final 2.4.0-test9 I will no longer accept
any patches that don't have a critical problem (as defined by Teds list)
associated with them.
So when you send me a patch, either bug Ted to mark the issue as
"critical" first, or pay me money. It's that easy.
- USB: OHCI controller unlink and bandwidth reclamation fixes
- USB: storage update
- sparc64: register window race. Non-deadlock rwlocks.
- name clash in hamradio/pi2.c and hamradio/pt.c
- epic100 credits, 8139too driver update, sr.c initcalls
- acenic update
- NFS sillyrename fixups
- mktime(). Do it just once - not 16 times.
- misc small fixes to random drivers by Tigran
- IDE driver picks up master/slave relationships on its own.
- truncate unmapped/uptodate case handled correctly
- don't do notifier locking at low level: higher levels do (or
should do) this already.
- ACPI interpreter updates (and file renames - making this part big)
- SysKonnect gigabit driver update
- 3c59x driver update
- pcmcia debounce logic. Ugh.
- MM balancing (Rik Riel)
- "extern inline" -> "static inline". It doesn't matter right now,
but it's proactive for future gcc versions.
- various net drvr updates and fixes
- more initcall updates
- PPC updates (including PPC-related drivers etc)
- disallow re-mounting same filesystem in same place multiple times.
Too confusing. And /etc/mtab gets strange.
- Riel VM update
- sparc updates
- PCI bridge scanning fix: assign numbers properly
- network updates
- scsi fixes
