    SubjectLinux 2.6.25-rc9

    I really don't want to do this, and I was actually hoping to release
    2.6.25 last weekend (which is why -rc9 is a few days late - just me hoping
    to not do another -rc at all), but I've done an -rc9.

    The changes in -rc9 are pretty small (shortlog appended), and 60% of them
    are m68k updates - mostly defconfigs. And some doc updates.

    But there's some network driver updates (tg3 and wireless hostap stand
    out), some late XFS patches and a mvsas driver update (the mvsas driver is
    new in 2.6.25, so that's not going to regress anything ;).

    The rest is mostly one-liners, with a few reverts going on.


    4.2% Documentation/filesystems/
    3.2% Documentation/networking/
    11.4% Documentation/
    55.7% arch/m68k/configs/
    59.4% arch/m68k/
    2.0% arch/powerpc/
    65.7% arch/
    3.6% drivers/net/
    4.2% drivers/scsi/
    12.7% drivers/
    2.3% fs/
    2.2% include/
    3.9% net/

    anyway, the reason for not doing a 2.6.25 is that some people are making
    noises about slab/page-alloc setup issues, and I wanted something out this
    week, but didn't feel comfy doing a final release.

    That said, I think I'll have to do 2.6.25 early next week regardless,
    because we can't just keep holding things back forever. At some point it
    will have to turn into a 2.6.25.x issue, and the developers with stuff
    pending for the next version need to be able to start merging.


    PS. This has been a somewhat frustrating last week or so. So if I was even
    less polite to somebody than usual in public or private emails, my
    apologies. You know who you are.
