SubjectLinux 2.6.27-rc9

I know, I know, I said that -rc8 was supposed to be the last -rc, and that
I'd release 2.6.27 this weekend.

I lied. Sue me. I merged two subtle regression fixes today, and while both
looked perfectly fine and had been tested by the people involved in the
regressions, I just couldn't bring myself to then just slap a "v2.6.27" on
it without some more testing.

So I'd like to get at least a couple of days of feedback on those fixes.
It also felt like a good idea to have an -rc with the patches that should
fix the (much-publicized) e1000e firmware corruption bugs. I know people
inside Intel are still looking at it, so there may be more changes in that
area, but I think we're set for 2.6.27 - but again, let's just do an -rc

If things go well, I might do a final release mid-week, otherwise it's
"next weekend" again.

The dirstat looks like the normal one: half arch code (mainly due to some
mips updates), and 30% drivers, with a smattering of other things (eg
sctp). But the things people would likely _care_ about are the e1000e
patches and the HP Turion-based laptop performance regression thing and
an GART mapping issue.

But here's the dirstat for an "overview" anyway:

35.3% arch/mips/kernel/
4.5% arch/mips/sibyte/swarm/
42.5% arch/mips/
3.7% arch/powerpc/boot/dts/
4.4% arch/powerpc/
52.9% arch/
11.3% drivers/ide/mips/
11.8% drivers/ide/
4.9% drivers/media/video/
6.6% drivers/media/
3.8% drivers/net/e1000e/
29.2% drivers/
5.0% include/asm-mips/
5.4% include/
3.5% net/sctp/
4.4% net/

and the shortlog is appended.


PS. I already bugged people on the git lists with this, but since I'm
totally shameless and can't help but hope that some random kernel person
also does tcl/tk or just wants to help improve my kids-time-tracker, I can
just point to

and hope that somebody would like to make that GUI better and/or feel like
they really want to do a "management interface" too ;)
