  • 2.4.28-rc4 was released as 2.4.28 with no changes.


Here goes the fourth release candidate of 2.4.28.

A few small problems showed up in time for another -rc.

Missing exported symbols in the networking area, an ACPI poweroff bugfix, aic7xxx compile fix with -Werror, a binfmt_elf underflow enhancement, an SCTP fix, and a couple TG3 fixes.

This will become v2.4.28 final if nothing _really_ bad shows up.

Thanks to everybody who has been contributing to make this happen.
