    SubjectLinux 2.6.37-rc7
    Another week, another -rc.

    Nothing really earth-shattering in here, but the most notable part is
    likely the PCI resource allocation changes, which revert back to
    allocating things bottom-up, and then add some logic to avoid random
    ACPI regions. That should fix the regressions in that area that we saw
    after -rc1.

    There's also a v4l update to fix some fallout from the BKL removal,
    and fix up a few other regressions.

    And a slightly uncomfortably large scheduler patch that should finally
    fix the "report too high load average" problem that has been plaguing
    the NOHZ case.

    Other than that, there's all the normal random patches spread out. ARM
    and MIPS updates, some lguest fixes, some fanotify stuff.. The
    shortlog gives a reasonable view.

    I'm still nervous about some of the regression reports for intel
    graphics, so please keep testing and reporting. This is the last -rc
    before xmas (or whatever your holiday may be), so now you all have a
    few free days when you have nothing better to do than test out an -rc
    release, right?
