    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
