Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.6.17-rc4

Ok, I’ve let the release time between -rc’s slide a bit too much
again, but -rc4 is out there, and this is the time to hunker down
for 2.6.17.

If you know of any regressions, please holler now, so that we
don’t miss them.

-rc4 itself is mainly random driver fixes (sound, infiniband,
scsi, network drivers), but some splice fixes too and some arch
(arm, powerpc, mips) updates. Shortlog follows,

    Linus
