    SubjectLinux 2.6.20-rc7

    Yes, I know I said I would only do -rc6 and then the final 2.6.20, but the
    thing is, the known regressions list didn't get whittled down as quickly
    as I hoped, and as a result we now have a -rc7.

    It's in good enough shape that I'd probably have been happy to just
    release it as 2.6.20, but since I want 2.6.20 to be a stability release, I
    didn't want to risk any stupid bugs while the regressions got fixed, so
    here's a final -rc7.

    In other words, please do give it a good testing. We should have fixed the
    nasty stuff on Adrian's list (and here's another thanks to Adrian for
    keeping me on my toes!) and it's all good. But please give it a quick
    shake-down to make sure that nothing silly happened while fixing the bad

    The shortlog really does say most of it - this is just various fixes for a
    number of mostly fairly inconsequential things, but the SG_IO timeout bug
    that hit any NeroLinux user would quite possibly impact other DVD/CD
    reader/writer programs too that used raw commands with timeouts.

    The diffstat just looks like line-noise: 244 files changed with an average
    of less than 10 lines per file changed in 179 commits. In other words,
    really no big diffs: it's just a lot of really small stuff.
