    SubjectLinux 2.6.25

    It's been long promised, but there it is now. Special thanks to Ingo who
    found and fixed a nasty-looking regression that turned out to not be a
    regression at all, but an old bug that just had not been triggering as
    reliably before.

    That said, that was just the last particular regression fix I was holding
    things up for, and it's not like there weren't a lot of other fixes too,
    they just didn't end up being the final things that triggered my
    particular worries.

    The full changelog from 2.6.24 is 7.5M, with a 12MB compressed patch. Tons
    and tons has changed, but if you've been following the -rc releases,
    you'll already know about the big things. The changes from the last rc
    (-rc9) are fairly small and mostly pretty trivial, and the shortlog is
    appended.

    So it's mostly one-liners, with some updates to drivers (net and usb) and
    to networking that are a bit larger (although a number of the driver
    updates are things like just new ID's etc).

    For those of you who haven't followed -rc's, and want the more readable
    overview of what has changed since 2.6.24, I'd suggest the usual sites,
    notably http://kernelnewbies.org/.

    And a reminder for git users: while the _full_ changelogs are huge and
    unwieldly and you easily lose sight of the big picture from just bring
    overwhelmed by the details, if you're interested in some particular
    subsystem, using "gitk v2.6.24.. <path-limiter>" is a good way to see what
    has changed in that particular area.
