    SubjectLinux 2.6.0-test7 - stability freeze

    The -test7 kernel is out there now - I'm not reaching, but it's
    on the other BK sites, and the tar-ball and patches are uploading to right now.

    The biggest part of the test7 patches are:
    - s390 update
    - DVB update
    - NFS (v4 in particular) update
    - cpufreq updates
    - ACPI update

    A lot of the rest are basically a lot of small onelines, along with fairly
    minor updates (networking fixes for shared skb's for remaining cases,
    janitorials, cleanups etc).

    The more interesting thing is that I and Andrew are trying to calm down
    development, and I do _not_ want to see patches that don't fix a real and
    clear bug. In other words, the "cleanup and janitorial" stuff is on hold,
    and -test8 and then -test9 should be for _stability_ fixes only.

    In other words, this should calm things down so that by the end of October
    we can look at the state of 2.6.0 without having a lot of noise from "not
    strictly necessary" stuff.

    Stephen Lord:
    o [XFS] Be consistent about when we dump error messages. Make sure
    the hex component of an error message only comes out when the
    message does.
    o [XFS] use dev_t less in xfs
    o [XFS] Switch pagebuf hashing to be based on the block_device
    address rather than the dev_t. Should give better distribution. Mod
    from Al Viro.
    o Remove dead file xfs_attr_fetch.c
    o [XFS] Remove dead flags
    o [XFS] remove unused va_fsid field
    o [XFS] remove dead function xfs_trans_iput
    o [XFS] Fix a broken interaction between a buffered read into an
    unwritten extent and a direct write
    o [XFS] Fix build
    o [XFS] fix merge error in pagebuf flush logic, bogus spinlock obtain
    was left in the code.
    o [XFS] fix the other half of the merge snafu
    o [XFS] fix log recovery report string formatting
    o [XFS] Re-work pagebuf & xfs stats to use per-cpu variables - big
    globals that are written all the time
    o [XFS] Close some holes in the metadata flush logic used during
    unmount, make sure we have no pending I/O completion calls for
    metadata, and that we only keep hold of metadata buffers for I/O
    completion if we want to. Still not perfect, but better than it
    o [XFS] When calculating the number of pages to probe for an
    unwritten extent, use the size of the extent, not the page count of
    the pagebuf which is initialized to zero.
    o [XFS] Either handle preemption with get/put or not, but don't get
    without a put! Fix code for preemptable kernels.
    o [XFS] Code cleanup
    o [XFS] Code cleanup
    o [XFS] small cleanup

    Steven Cole:

    Trond Myklebust:
    o UDP round trip timer fix. Modify Karn's algorithm so that we
    inherit timeouts from previous requests.
    o Make the client act correctly if the RPC server's asserts that it
    does not support a given program, version or procedure call.
    o Fix up hangs with the upcall mechanism for RPCSEC_GSS and the NFSv4
    o Increase the NFS readahead so that we at least fill the RPC slot
    o Fix an Oops in the NFSv4 asynchronous unlink code. The v4 getattr
    "bitmap" was allocated on the stack.
    o Clean up the nfs_fhget() function. Have the called pass the
    superblock as a parameter instead of passing it in the form
    o Rename the struct "nfs4_shareowner". The name was confusing and
    didn't really relate to any of the RFCs.
    o The NFSv4 state model assumes that the client machine identifies
    itself to the server once and once only.
    o Simplify the synchronous NFS read call interface by passing a
    pointer to a filled nfs_read_data structure (the same struct used
    by the asynchronous function calls)
    o Simplify NFS synchronous write call interface. Pass a pointer to a
    filled nfs_write_data struct like we do for asynchronous function
    o NFSv4 state model update
    o Clean up the nfs4_stateid and nfs4_verifier typedefs

    Ulrich Drepper:
