Subject Linux 3.0-rc6 ..
and a happy Independence Day to all the US kernel people out
There is not a lot to be said about -rc6. The biggest part by
far is the inclusion of the intel isci driver - I was admittedly a
bit doubtful about it, but it's not like it is going to cause
regressions for any existing Linux users, so whatever.
And quite frankly, Christoph Hellwig has now _twice_ said good
things about that driver, which is pretty unusual. It might mean
that the driver is great. Of course, it's way more likely that
space aliens are secretly testing their happy drugs on Christoph.
Or maybe he's just naturally mellowing.
Other than the isci driver, the rest really is just lots of
random small stuff. It's getting to the point where I'm thinking I
should just release 3.0, because it's been pretty quiet, and the
fixes haven't been earth-shakingly exciting. Some drm (radeon and
intel) fixes might be noticeable to more people, the rest would
tend to be pretty esoteric.
And so, I'm off to make s'mores,
