Linux 2.6.39-rc5

“Another week, another keyboard destroyed by spilling coffee on

“We have slightly fewer commits than in -rc4, which is good. At
the same time, I have to berate some people for merging some
dubious regression fixes.

“Sadly, the “people” I have to berate is me, because -rc5
contains what technically _is_ a regression, but it’s a performance
thing, and it’s a bit scary. It’s the patches from Andi(with some
editing by Eric) to make it possible to do the whole RCU pathname
walk even if you have SElinux enabled.”
