    SubjectLinux 2.6.36-rc7
    So I decided to break my a-week-is-eight-days rut, and actually
    release -rc7 after a proper seven-day week instead. Wo-oo!

    And yes, that's probably as exciting as it gets, which is just fine by
    me. This should be the last -rc, I'm not seeing any reason to keep
    delaying a real release. There was still more changes to
    drivers/gpu/drm than I really would have hoped for, but they all look
    harmless and good. Famous last words.

    Apart from that, there's some mips updates, some late ACPI fixes, and
    lots of small random noise. I was looking at the dirstat, and noticed
    that xfs shows up at 6%, but even that is just a single commit that is
    mainly comment fixups. Which just goes to show that there's really a
    lot of small trivial one-liners: 167 files changed, 992
    insertions(+), 562 deletions(-) in 137 non-merge commits really does
    end up being about a lot of very small changes.

    [ Git hint of the day: do

    git log --stat --oneline --no-merges v2.6.36-rc6..v2.6.36-rc7

    to get a dense view of the commits and visually pick out the ones
    that aren't trivial one-liners)
