At the moment -next is completely unusable for anything other than
detecting merge conflicts.. Running -next was never a completely
smooth experience but for a past year it was more-or-less doable.
However the last two months have been an absolute horror and I've
been hitting issues way faster than I was able to trace/report
them properly..

Right now I still have following *outstanding* issues (on just *one*
machine/distribution):

- Random (after some long hours) order:6 mode:0x8020 page allocation
failure (when ipw2200 driver reloads firmware on firmware error).

[ I had first thought that it was caused by SLQB (which got enabled
as default somewhere along the way) but it also happens with SLUB
and I have good reasons to believe that is caused by heavy mm
changes first seen in next-20090618 (I've been testing next-20090617
for many days and it never happened there), the last confirmed
release with the problem is next-20090728. ]

- bdi warning, http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/7/15/262, (this one goes back
to at least next-20090708, reconfirmed with next-20090806).

- Random OOPSes on shutdown (since the last week or so, didn't have time
to investigate them).

- Lockup on stopping iptables (I've just noticed it in next-20090806,
seems to also happen with next-20090731).

I give up and I'm back to using Linus' tree.. :(
