I'm unlikely to be able to merge everything by tomorrow, so I will
consider tomorrow a submission deadline to me, rather than a merge
deadline. That said, I merged everything I'm sure I want to merge today,
and the rest I simply haven't had time to look at very much.

This apparently breaks things like DRI, which I'm fairly unhappy about,
since I think 3D is important.

This one is just huge, and I have little personal judgement on it.

I don't know what this buys us.

I haven't even seen it.

> ext2/ext3 ACLs and Extended Attributes

I don't know why people still want ACL's. There were noises about them for
samba, but I'v enot heard anything since. Are vendors using this?

> ucLinux Patch (MMU-less support)

I've seen this, it looks pretty ok.

> Crash Dumping (LKCD)

This is definitely a vendor-driven thing. I don't believe it has any
relevance unless vendors actively support it.


I think I'll do at least the API, but there were some questions about the
config options here, I think.

> Hotplug CPU Removal Support

No objections, but very little visibility into it either.

> Hires Timers

This one is likely another "vendor push" thing.


Not for the feature freeze, there are some noises that imply that SuSE may
push it in their kernels.

> initramfs

I want this.
