Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.17-rc2

Apr 19, 2006, 14:30 (0 Talkback[s])

Instead of the normal one-week release schedule, there was now two weeks between 2.6.17-rc1 and -rc2, partly because I was travelling for one of those weeks, but partly because it was really quiet for a while. Likely a lot of people are concentrating on 2.6.16 and vendor releases.

It picked up a bit in the last few days (it's also possible that the US people were all just stressed out over tax season ;) , and I cut a 2.6.17-rc2. I expect to be back to the weekly schedule now, even if it is quiet (which I hope it will be).

Not a lot of hugely interesting stuff, with a large portion of the diff being a late MIPS update (tssk tssk), and the huge diff from the long over-due removal of the Sangoma wan drivers that have been marked BROKEN for a long time. Same goes for the qlogicfc driver (which has been supplanted by the qla2xxx driver).

As a result, the diff has just tons of deletions, even if most of the rest of the changes aren't all that big. But there are netfilter fixes, some more splice work, and just tons of random stuff: usb, scsi, knfsd, fuse, infiniband..

Shortlog follows, for more details on it all..
