Nothing stands out as affecting most people here. Security fix for /proc,
and various cleanups. Alpha and sparc fixes. If you use RAID or ramdisk,



- pre2:
- Stephen Rothwell: directory notify could return with the lock held
- Richard Henderson: CLOCKS_PER_SEC on alpha.
- Jeff Garzik: ramfs and highmem: kmap() the page to clear it
- Asit Mallick: enable the APIC in the official order
- Neil Brown: avoid rd deadlock on io_request_lock by using a
private rd-request function. This also avoids unnecessary
request merging at this level.
- Ben LaHaise: vmalloc threadign and overflow fix
- Randy Dunlap: USB updates (plusb driver). PCI cacheline size.
- Neil Brown: fix a raid1 on top of lvm bug that crept in in pre1
- Alan Cox: various (Athlon mmx copy, NULL ptr checks for
scsi_register etc).
- Al Viro: fix /proc permission check security hole.
- Can-Ru Yeou: SiS301 fbcon driver
- Andrew Morton: NMI oopser and kernel page fault punch through
both console_lock and timerlist_lock to make sure it prints out..
- Jeff Garzik: clean up "kmap()" return type (it returns a kernel
virtual address, ie a "void *").
- Jeff Garzik: network driver docs, various one-liners.
- David Miller: add generic "special" flag to page flags, to be
used by architectures as they see fit. Like keeping track of
cache coherency issues.
- David Miller: sparc64 updates, make sparc32 boot again
- Davdi Millner: spel "synchronous" correctly
- David Miller: networking - fix some bridge issues, and correct
IPv6 sysctl entries.
- Dan Aloni: make fork.c use proper macro rather than doing
get_exec_domain() by hand.

- pre1:
- me: make PCMCIA work even in the absense of PCI irq's
- me: add irq mapping capabilities for Cyrix southbridges
- me: make IBMMCA compile right as a module
- me: uhhuh. Major atomic-PTE SMP race boo-boo. Fixed.
- Andrea Arkangeli: don't allow people to set security-conscious
bits in mxcsr through ptrace SETFPXREGS.
- Jürgen Fischer: aha152x update
- Andrew Morton, Trond Myklebust: file locking fixes
- me: TLB invalidate race with highmem
- Paul Fulghum: synclink/n_hdlc driver updates
- David Miller: export sysctl_jiffies, and have the proper no-sysctl
version handy
- Neil Brown: RAID driver deadlock and nsfd read access to
execute-only files fix
- Keith Owens: clean up module information passing, remove
- Jeff Garzik: network (and other) driver fixes and cleanups
- Andrea Arkangeli: scheduler cleanup.
- Ching-Ling Li: fix ALi sound driver memory leak
- Anton Altaparmakov: upcase fix for NTFS
- Thomas Woller: CS4281 audio update
