SubjectLinux 2.6.25-rc5

So the size of the -rc patches is finally starting to shrink, but we still
have way too many outstanding regression reports. Some of them should be
already fixed in -rc5, but many won't be. So reporters, please do keep
updating your entries as to whether they are fixed or not.

This time around, about 60% of the diffs are in arch code, but that's a
bit misleading, because over half of that is actually just the defconfig
files for SH. With the patch-queues shrinking, big trivial patches like
that easily end up being inordinately noticeable just because there's a
lot of lines there.

But apart from SH, the ia64 and SCSI updates do stand out. The rest is
really pretty randomly spread out. I suspect the shortlog does as good a
job as can be done (and is now small enough to be posted), but here's the
dirstat anyway since I've given it for previous -rc releases.

15.1% arch/ia64/kernel/
18.3% arch/ia64/
2.3% arch/sh/boards/renesas/sh7710voipgw/
2.3% arch/sh/boards/renesas/
2.9% arch/sh/boards/
32.8% arch/sh/configs/
37.6% arch/sh/
59.3% arch/
7.7% drivers/scsi/aic94xx/
2.0% drivers/scsi/libsas/
17.1% drivers/scsi/
21.3% drivers/
2.4% fs/
2.9% include/linux/
3.9% include/
2.7% kernel/
4.4% security/selinux/
5.7% security/

I'd like developers and testers alike to take a good look at the
regression email that Rafael sends out, and please help him keep the
entries up-to-date.
