for everybody who thought "stoned beaver" wasn't an appropriate
name for a kernel (yeah, I'm sure IBM really minds my naming
scheme, and is deathly afraid it will scare away customers), I'm
happy to tell you that the beaver just went into detox, and I'm
taking the Thanksgiving weekend off.
I give you "Beaver in Detox", aka linux-2.6.0-test11. This is
mainly brought on by the fact that the old aic7xxx driver was
broken in -test10, and Ingo found this really evil test program
that showed an error case in do_fork() that we had never handled
right. Well, duh!
While at it, this also pulls in some firewire fixes and a few
potential skbuff leakage points.
Please don't even bother sending me patches, because I'll be
stuffing my face away from email over the next few days. And after
that it will be up to Andrew to say how to go on from here.
