SubjectLinux 2.6.36
So it's a week later than I wanted (plus all the days that added up
from me having a few 8-day weeks during this release window), but it's
out there now.

The delay means that the merge window that opens now would cover the
upcoming kernel summit. However, I really hope that everybody sends me
their patches and pull requests _before_ KS even starts. And if you're
affected by the kernel summit you probably won't have time during it
to finalize anything that week anyway, especially for those staying
for plumbers afterwards, and...

So I'm going to hope that we could perhaps even do the 2.6.37 -rc1
release and close the merge window the Sunday before KS opens. Since
2.6.36 was longer than usual (at least it felt that way), I wouldn't
mind having a 2.6.37 that is shorter than usual.

But holler if this really screws up any plans. Ten days instead of two
weeks? Let's see if it's even reasonably realistic.

Anyway, I'm appending the shortlog since -rc8. At least it's
noticeably shorter than the -rc7 and -rc8 logs were, and most of it
really is pretty small.

For the bigger picture of changes since 2.6.35, see for example

but it may be worth pointing out that we ended up disabling the new
fanotify system calls because people were still unsure about the
interfaces. Better let the interface discussion cook a bit longer than
release with a bad interface that we need to redo.
