SubjectLinux 2.6.25-rc9

I really don't want to do this, and I was actually hoping to release
2.6.25 last weekend (which is why -rc9 is a few days late - just me hoping
to not do another -rc at all), but I've done an -rc9.

The changes in -rc9 are pretty small (shortlog appended), and 60% of them
are m68k updates - mostly defconfigs. And some doc updates.

But there's some network driver updates (tg3 and wireless hostap stand
out), some late XFS patches and a mvsas driver update (the mvsas driver is
new in 2.6.25, so that's not going to regress anything ;).

The rest is mostly one-liners, with a few reverts going on.


4.2% Documentation/filesystems/
3.2% Documentation/networking/
11.4% Documentation/
55.7% arch/m68k/configs/
59.4% arch/m68k/
2.0% arch/powerpc/
65.7% arch/
3.6% drivers/net/
4.2% drivers/scsi/
12.7% drivers/
2.3% fs/
2.2% include/
3.9% net/

anyway, the reason for not doing a 2.6.25 is that some people are making
noises about slab/page-alloc setup issues, and I wanted something out this
week, but didn't feel comfy doing a final release.

That said, I think I'll have to do 2.6.25 early next week regardless,
because we can't just keep holding things back forever. At some point it
will have to turn into a 2.6.25.x issue, and the developers with stuff
pending for the next version need to be able to start merging.


PS. This has been a somewhat frustrating last week or so. So if I was even
less polite to somebody than usual in public or private emails, my
apologies. You know who you are.
