    Why are journaling filesystems only for servers?
    Is file system efficiency not relevant on servers?

    The important sections are more likely (ordered by priority):
    - bug fixes (e.g. aic7xxx)
    - support for additional hardware (e.g. ACPI update)
    - new features (e.g. XFS)

    These groups are not mutual exclusive, e.g. the ACPI update also
    includes new features.

    The important thing is that this is inside a stable kernel series and an
    update that makes things better for 100 people but makes things worse
    for one person is IMHO bad since it's a regression for one person.
