Linux 3.0 rc7

Jul 12, 2011, 11:00 (0 Talkback[s])

I think I said -rc6 might be the last -rc. I lied.

Things have been pretty quiet, but there's enough new stuff here that I wanted to do another -rc, and we still have some issues with the RCU changes causing problems when RCU events happen before the scheduler has been fully initialized etc. So -rc7 is out there, although it might not have mirrored out to the public sites quite yet.

I also ended up re-generating the -rc6 files (fat-fingered the release script), so the -rc6 patches and tar-balls look all brand spanking new too! Two releases for the price of one!

There's not a whole lot to say about it - the appended shortlog gives a reasonable overview. Random drivers (we're back to the usual "two thirds drivers" statistics), some media and cifs updates, and some vmscan corner case improvements.
