    Nothing much new here except for a fix for the ext3-related memory leak which
    Con reported recently.


    The main items which remain unmerged from the -mm patch series are now:

    - red/black-tree based insertion and sorting for the I/O scheduler.

    Jens will be submitting this next week. It's completely stable, and the
    patch includes the addition of the I/O scheduler tunables in
    /sys/block/hda/iosched/, which is fairly important.

    - Code to automatically unplug request queues on the basis of their
    occupancy and a timeout.

    Jens will be reviewing this soon.

    - dcache-RCU.

    This was recently updated to fix a rename race. It's quite stable. I'm
    not sure where we stand wrt merging it now. Al seems to have disappeared.

    - Ingo Oeser's user page walking rework. This appears to be stable,
    although I'm not sure what testing it has had apart from a lot of direct-io
    testing.

    - Quite a lot of misc stuff which I need to go through and either send or
    toss.
