    Subjectlinux 2.5.23

    I asked "what more can you ask for" for 2.5.22, and somebody immediately
    piped up with raid5 working again.

    Well, here you have a big MD merge from Neil Brown, which may or may not
    get you there. Good luck.

    Other stuff: s390/x86-64/network/usb updates. Nonlinear CPU's. Build
    updates: module versioning should work again. Various stuff.
