Subject Linux 3.0-rc5
Nothing terribly exciting here.
The most noteworthy thing may be that only about a quarter of
the changes are in drivers, filesystem changes actually account for
more(40%): btrfs, cifs, ext4, jbd2, nfs are all present and
On the driver side, there's some gpu updates, infiniband, mmc,
sound and some SCSI target fixes.
And the normal random smattering of changes all around. Like
some long-standing compile failure (admittedly you need to enable
some esoteric resource counting options and disable NUMA to trigger
it, but still). I think there's a few more lurking in staging, with
fixes yet to be merged.
The appended shortlog is fairly readable.
