    SubjectLinux 2.6.28-rc2

    It's not been a week yet, but we had a few annoying brown-paper-bugs in
    -rc1 that made it hard for many people to test without applying patches.
    So rather than wait out the week, I'll just make an -rc2 early, with the
    fixes for the problems that kept people from testing it.

    And hey, maybe we can even _continue_ the nice model of "just small fixes
    after -rc1". I know, it sounds insane, but it's a real pleasure to do an
    -rc2 with just a handful of fixes for real problems that real people see.
    What a concept!

    Anyway, as a result, the shortlog and diffstats are both tiny, and easily
    appended. There's a few hwmon fixes and some pretty trivial ones, but the
    noticeable ones are:

    - the non-NCQ libata breakage thing that broke lots of peoples setups

    - the workqueue init bug that caused various random problems if you had
    a SMP machine and did not enable HOTPLUG_CPU. Symptoms included boot
    hangs, or hung applications (eg sound from firefox) or lack of USB
    activity (eg "no keyboard reaction")

    - some broken apps seemed to be unhappy that we checked the 'struct
    timeval' timeout to select for sanity, since they initialized it with
    insane multi-second microsecond fields. Oh, well.

    - ext3/ext4 had introduced a bug where the same directory entry might get
    returned twice under some circumstances, which didn't faze most
    programs, but caused problems for at least "rm -r" and "git clean"

    There's other stuff in there too, but not much, and most of it is pretty
    trivial (eg odd config issues, or the explanation for why you should
    enable the regulatory option for wireless) or much harder to trigger (the
    eventpoll oops fix). Or small fixes to random drivers (hwmon and the r8169
