SubjectLinux 2.6.10-ac1
Linux 2.6.10-ac1 is a merge of the stuff that has not yet been accepted
upstream along with a couple of small extra changes that are needed because
of changes in 2.6.10 base. In addition the generic IRQ work in 2.6.10 means
that the forward port of the irqpoll code now covers a lot more platforms.

While this has had a lot less testing than 2.6.9-ac16 it does contain much
better core USB and SCSI code so may in some cases be worth an early move.

Arjan van de Ven is now building RPMS of the kernel and those can be found
in the RPM subdirectory and should be yum-able. Expect the RPMS to lag the
diff a little as the RPM builds and tests do take time.

Key: o - only in -ac
* - already fixed upstream
X - discarded later as wrong
+ - ac specific (fix not relevant to non -ac)

o Revert AX.25 protocol breakage (Alan Cox)
o Remove bogus obsolete option junk from 2.6.10 (Alan Cox)
ide changes
| Options are often useful, so should be kept.
| Especially stuff like serialize
o Fix bogus dma_ naming in the 2.6.10 patch (Alan Cox)
o Initial CS5520 fixups for VDMA and 2.6.10
| Must set vdma flag before command issue
| ?? could we just set it at boot and leave it - probably (check)

Forward ported from 2.6.9-ac

also an error return for pci probe functions

o Fix reset problems with older 3c59x/3c90x (John Linville)
o Configurable 100/1Khz clock for x86 (James Bottomley)
| 100Hz is great for battery life
o Delkin cardbus IDE support (Mark Lord)
o IT8212 IDE support (Alan Cox)
o Add more AC97 table data
o Token ring locking fix
o Fix URL for lanana (Alexander Stohr)
o Add a 1620 byte slab cache for ethernet frames (Arjan van de Ven)
o EDD boot options (Matt Domsch)
o Don't probe legacy ISA ide2,3,4,5 on PCI boxes (Alan Cox)
o Restore PWC driver (Luc Saillard)
| Please port away from remap_page_range

o Initial patch for ide_abort hang (Alan Cox)
o Fix serveral ide timing violations on reset (Alan Cox)
o Support CSB6-R Serverworks raid (Alan Cox)
o Teach ide-cd to use sense data for file system (Alan Cox)
- This means you get better diagonstics on CD errors
- It means a partial I/O failure will get you back the ok sectors
- It may fix the problem some users have with ISO copying and ide-cd
o Lock ide-proc against driver unload (Alan Cox)
(very low severity)
o Fix ide /proc and legacy devices problem (Alan Cox)
o Watchdog support for early cobalt ALi hardware (Mike Waychison)
