Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.17-rc5

there it is in all the normal places (or will be, once mirroring finishes).

It's mainly drivers updates (firewire sbp2 driver, infiniband ipath driver, some DVB updates, and some mmc, network, spi and usb driver stuff).

But there's a few netfilter and sctp updates too, and various random one-liners around.. As usual, the shortlog is pretty readable, and gives a reasonable view into the details.

This will hopefully be the last -rc before the final 2.6.17, knock wood..
