Oh well... I'm not very proud of this, because quite frankly, -rc2 has way more changes than I really like.

And yeah, it's largely my fault, because I simply missed a V4L/DVB merge that came in before the merge window closed, but since I didn't notice it didn't make -rc1, and as such it got merged late and is in -rc2 instead.

But because I'll flail around wildly and rather blame anything else than my own incompetence, I'll just claim that all the other kernel developers have been irresponsible, and caused -rc2 to be bigger than needed. In some areas (you know who you are) it may even be true.

Apart from the V4L/DVB merge, we've got a late PARISC update, and a number of driver updates (ata, networking, usb) changes. Along with the normal smattering of random stuff (core networking, selinux, infiniband, agp, mips, arm).

Anyway, I really hope the thing starts calming down now, and everybody should take a hard look at the regressions lists that Adrian has started sending out. We already fixed some of them, but there is more to go..
