most everybody at least in Europe are off on vacation.

Regardless of why, -rc3 is out, and doesn't have the tons of changes that
-rc2 did. But there's some scheduler updates, sparc64 and powerpc changes,
and random driver updates (the lpfc SCSI driver kind of stands out in the

Shortlog appended, I don't know what I can add to it.. Please do give it a
good testing, unless you're on a beach sunning yourself (and who are we
kidding: you're pasty white, and sand is hard to get out of the keyboard -
beaches are overrated).
