    ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.16-rc5/2.6.16-rc5-mm2/


    - Should be a bit better than 2.6.16-rc5-mm1, but I still had to fix a ton
    of things to get this to compile and boot. We're not being careful enough.

    - The procfs rework is getting there, but some problems probably still remain.

    - There will be a number of new warnings at boot time when initcalls fail.
    Generally that's OK: it usually indicates that you linked something into
    vmlinux which you're not actually using. But sometimes it can indicate
    kernel bugs.

    - The (much-shrunk) audit git tree is back.



    Boilerplate:

    - See the `hot-fixes' directory for any important updates to this patchset.

    - To fetch an -mm tree using git, use (for example)

    git fetch git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/smurf/linux-trees.git v2.6.16-rc2-mm1

    - -mm kernel commit activity can be reviewed by subscribing to the
    mm-commits mailing list.

    echo "subscribe mm-commits" | mail majordomo@vger.kernel.org

    - If you hit a bug in -mm and it's not obvious which patch caused it, it is
    most valuable if you can perform a bisection search to identify which patch
    introduced the bug. Instructions for this process are at

    http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/bisecting-mm-trees.txt

    But beware that this process takes some time (around ten rebuilds and
    reboots), so consider reporting the bug first and if we cannot immediately
    identify the faulty patch, then perform the bisection search.

    - When reporting bugs, please try to Cc: the relevant maintainer and mailing
    list on any email.
