SubjectLinux 2.6.30-rc6

Another week, another -rc.

Things definitely are calming down, with just about 300 commits in the
last week. And most of them are pretty small too, although the powerpc
updates brought some defconfig changes that look largish.

Somewhat unusually, the dirstat shows filesystems with as much changes as
drivers - we had some nilfs2 and reiserfs updates there, along with some
mostly trivial vfs layer cleanups. We had a BKL pushdown in the umount
paths, for example (that will hopefully make it easier to then merge the
BKL removal patches for reiserfs during the next merge window).

On the arch side, apart from the powerpc things, we have soem cris and
MIPS updates. The bulk of the cris updates was merging the compressed boot
code across chris-v10 and chris-v32, so the diffs there look bigger than
they really were.

On the driver front, there's some sata updates, some i915 graphics
updates, and various other small things sprinkled all over. Some sound
driver updates too, although most of those seem to be the davinci stuff
(from the arm merge last -rc), so most people won't notice or care.

And we've hopefully fixed a number of regressions. Please remind people
(me very much included) of all the ones that you still see - I've been
missing Rafael's regular regression summaries ;(
