    Subject[2.6] The List, pass #2
    I've reorganized the list into 5 categories based on the feedback 
    I received. Now let's see what happens :-)

    In line with your expectations?

    -- Guillaume

    Likely to be merged before feature freeze:

    o New VM with reverse mappings
    o Add Linux Security Module (LSM)
    o New MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) driver
    o Add support for CPU clock/voltage scaling
    o Add User-Mode Linux (UML)
    o Direct pagecache <-> BIO disk I/O
    o Fix device naming issues
    o Remove the 2TB block device limit

    "The pressure is on! (TM)":
    (either gets merged before feature freeze or has to wait till 2.7)

    o Rewrite of the console layer
    o XFS (A journaling filesystem from SGI)
    o LVM (Logical Volume Manager) v2.0
    o Zerocopy NFS
    o Asynchronous IO (aio) support
    o New kernel build system (kbuild 2.5)
    o Serial driver restructure
    o Replace initrd by initramfs
    o ext2/ext3 large directory support: HTree index

    Can be merged after the feature freeze and before the 2.6 release:

    o Strict address space accounting
    o More complete NetBEUI stack
    o Add hardware sensors drivers
    o PCMCIA Zoom video support
    o Change all drivers to new driver model
    o UDF Write support for CD-R/RW (packet writing)
    o USB gadget support

    Would be nice to have before feature freeze, but most likely 2.7:

    o Improved i2o (Intelligent Input/Ouput) layer
    o Read-Copy Update Mutual Exclusion
    o New IO scheduler
    o Per-mountpoint read-only, union-mounts, unionfs
    o EVMS (Enterprise Volume Management System)
    o Dynamic Probes
    o Page table sharing
    o ext2/ext3 online resize support
    o Better event logging for enterprise systems
    o UMSDOS (Unix under MS-DOS) Rewrite
    o Scalable Statistics Counter
    o Linux Kernel Crash Dumps
    o SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol)
    o High resolution timers
    o Overhaul PCMCIA support
    o Reiserfs v4
    o New lightweight library (klibc)
    o New mount API
    o Generic parameter/command line interface
    o Full compliance with IPv6
    o Serial ATA support
    o Add support for NFS v4

    Definitely 2.7:

    o InfiniBand support
    o Add thrashing control
    o Remove all hardwired drivers from kernel
