Subject2.6.16-rc5-mm2

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.
