Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.6-rc1/2.6.6-rc1-mm1/

  • All of the anonmm rmap work is now merged up. No pte chains.
  • Various cleanups and fixups, as usual.
  • The list of external bk trees is getting a little short, due to problems at bkbits.net. The ones which are here are not necessarily very up-to-date with the various development trees.

Changes since 2.6.5-mm6:

bk-acpi.patch
bk-agpgart.patch
bk-alsa.patch
bk-cifs.patch
bk-cpufreq.patch
bk-drm.patch
