    SubjectLinux 2.6.14

    Ok, it's finally there.

    2.6.14 was delayed twice due to some last-minute bug-reports, some of
    which ended up being false alarms (hey, I should be happy, but it was a
    bit frustrating)

    But hey, the delays - even when perhaps unnecessary - got us to look at
    the code and fix some other bugs instead. So it's all good.

    So special thanks go to Oleg Nesterov and Roland McGrath for doing some
    code inspection and fixing and just making the otherwise frustrating wait
    for bug resolution more productive ;^p.

    Let's try the 2-week merge window thing again, I think it worked pretty
    well despite the delays, and hopefully it will work even better this time

    The actual changes from 2.6.14-rc5 are a number of mostly one-liners, with
    the ShortLog appended (full log from 2.6.13 on the normal sites together
    with the release itself). The only slightly bigger ones (ie more than a
    handful of lines) is a kernel parameter doc update, and the PIIX4 PCI
    quirk printouts, and the cleanups/fixes for the posix cpu timers.

    (In fact, according to diffstat, about half the diff is that one
    documentation update, and most of that is whitespace cleanups)
