Date: Fri, 22 Sep 2000 16:24:20 -0700 (PDT) From: Linus Torvalds [email protected] To: Kernel Mailing List [email protected] Subject: test9-pre6 This should fix the VM deadlocks (knock wood), and adds the infrastructure for better samba serving. And lots of small details... Linus ----- - pre1: - USB: OHCI controller unlink and bandwidth reclamation fixes - USB: storage update - sparc64: register window race. Non-deadlock rwlocks. - name clash in hamradio/pi2.c and hamradio/pt.c - epic100 credits, 8139too driver update, sr.c initcalls - acenic update - NFS sillyrename fixups - mktime(). Do it just once - not 16 times. - misc small fixes to random drivers by Tigran - IDE driver picks up master/slave relationships on its own. - truncate unmapped/uptodate case handled correctly - don't do notifier locking at low level: higher levels do (or should do) this already. - ACPI interpreter updates (and file renames - making this part big) - SysKonnect gigabit driver update - 3c59x driver update - pcmcia debounce logic. Ugh. - MM balancing (Rik Riel) - pre2: - "extern inline" -> "static inline". It doesn't matter right now, but it's proactive for future gcc versions. - various net drvr updates and fixes - more initcall updates - PPC updates (including PPC-related drivers etc) - disallow re-mounting same filesystem in same place multiple times. Too confusing. And /etc/mtab gets strange. - Riel VM update - sparc updates - PCI bridge scanning fix: assign numbers properly - network updates - scsi fixes - pre3: - uninitialized == zero. Remove extra initializers. - block_prepare_write and block_truncate_page: if the page is up-to-date, then so are the buffer heads inside it once they are mapped.. - SCSI initialization - move over to the modular case. No more double initialization. - Sync up with Alans 2.2.x driver changes - networking updates (iipv6 works non-modular etc) - netfilter update - adfs correct dentry operations - ARM update (including ARM drivers) - acenic driver update - floppy: we'd better hold the io_request_lock when playing with "CURRENT". - NFS cache coherency across file locking fix - NFS over TCP - handle TCP socket writability right.. - USB updates - pre4: - more USB updates - continued SCSI cleanup - pre5: - more drivers synced to Alan's 2.2.x changes - sis900 driver update - Andries: net device name allocation as in 2.2.x - pmac SCSI driver init update - ixj telephony driver fixes - _fput/__fput are no longer used. - more USB updates - codafs update - byteorder: use statement expressions instead of macros, to avoid argument re-use. - don't disallow Onstream ide-scsi devices - fix cardbus bridge resources.. - Make SCSI initialization order be same as before. - pre6: - Add Camino chipset ID to eepro100 driver. - VM UP deadlock fix - codafs fixups - networking updates - USB uhci updates - makefile documentation update - emu10k stereo sound fix. - new PCI ids - more linux-2.2 driver sync-ups - VIA IDE driver bugfixes - update atp ISA net driver - file locking fixes - make the scsi-generic module work properly again. - careful memory ordering by Andrea.. - alpha RTC year magic again.. - broadcast I/O APIC interrupt MP-tables are legal.. - samba 2.2 needs leases for efficient file sharing. They are kind of like file locks with async IO notification. - teach st.c about some SCSI tapes that really aren't SCSI tapes (OnStream) - TUN/TAP driver: use proper device number (misc device, minor=200).
