    SubjectLinux v2.6.16-rc6

    Ok, we're getting closer, although the 2.6.16 release certainly seems to
    drag out more than it should have.

    Some of the worrisome bootup problems seem to have been resolved to a
    stupid build-time race, where we just generated an empty version string.

    The diffstat shows that the largest changes here are the ia64 defconfig
    updates, much of the rest really is pretty small, but all over the map.
    Some ocfs2 and 9pfs fixes and updates, and various driver and networking

    The ShortLog (appended) gives a pretty good picture of it,
