SubjectRusty's Remarkably Unreliable List of Pending 2.6 Features
Date
I'm down to 8 undecided features: 6 removed and one I missed earlier.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/rusty/2.6-not-in-yet
(Reproduced below.)

Removed ("vendor-driven" == "no", for purposes of the freeze)
Linux Trace Toolkit: "no"
statfs64: noone seems to be pushing
ext2/3 ACLs & EA: included
Crash Dumper: "no"
Hi-res Timers: "no"
SCSI and FibreChannel Hotswap: "via. maintainers but probably not"

Added:
Nanosecond Time Patch

Linus, are you going to appoint [davej] someone [davej] to help you
[davej] hold the freeze? It'd be nice if someone [davej] else had to
pre-approve or co-approve patches before they went in.

I don't really care who the somebody [davej] is.
Rusty.

Entrance criteria:

* Must have been submitted to lkml in the last month,
* Hasn't been rejected by the maintainer/Linus,
* Not appropriate for insertion during stable series (ie. too invasive, new feature, breaks userspace)
