Good question

Arjan van de Ven is now building RPMS of the kernel and those can be found
in the RPM subdirectory and should be yum-able. Expect the RPMS to lag the
diff a little as the RPM builds and tests do take time.

Nothing terribly exciting here security wise but various bugs for problems
people have been hitting that are now fixed upstream, and also the ULi
tulip variant should now work. If you are running IPv6 you may well want
the networking fixes.

Key: o - only in -ac
* - already fixed upstream
X - discarded later as wrong
+ - ac specific (fix not relevant to non -ac)

o First phase of HPT driver cleanups (Alan Cox)
| This is just clean ups: the actual changes to make HPT372N
| work well will happen elsewhere first for obvious reasons
o ACARD scsi driver updates
o netpoll fixes (Matt Mackall)
* Fix a bug that could cause corruption of large (Petr Vandrovec)
