SubjectLinux 2.6.36-rc2
Another week, another -rc. I didn't really ever get around to
announcing -rc1 when I released it, and we had enough niggling small
problems (like a memory corruptor in the HID layer that ended up
causing some random problems etc) there that I never got around to
fixing that lack of announcement. And hopefully -rc2 is a good point
to correct the lack of earlier commentary.

The main commentary about it is that I'll be back in "fairly strict"
mode as of -rc2. IOW, send me regression fixes only. Really. I already
dropped some git pull requests that were a bit too obviously new
feature stuff after the merge window closed, but I let some others
through (in some cases because I really wanted the features, like some
of the VFS pulls). But no more. I'm going to be pretty strict about
just taking real fixes. I think it helped during the 2.6.35
stabilization window, and so I think it's worth doing for 2.6.36 too.

Apart from the VFS updates (that bring in just a small part of Nick's
scalability patch, and sadly not the most interesting part), the other
big merge in -rc2 is the intel graphics update. I'm not hugely happy
about the timing of it, but I think I needed to pull it. Apart from
that, there's a number of random fixes all over, the appended shortlog
gives you a taste of it.

Going back to -rc1 - the big "fundamental" things merged this merge
window were likely

(a) fanotify (and I really am not going to take another notification
rewrite for a couple of _years_ now. Enough is enough. If this isn't
good enough, then the next time around somebody wants to rejigger the
notification layer, they had better have some d*mn strong arguments.)

(b) the workqueue work. Let's hope this really gets rid of various
ad-hoc subsystem per-CPU threads etc.

(c) various VM layer updates (writeback and oom) that I hope will be
much less painful than they were for 2.6.35.

but as usual, the bulk of the updates were just all the normal driver
updates. The arch subdirectory shrunk by an appreciable amount due to
continuing defconfig cleanups, but the driver additions more than made
up for the lines deleted in defconfigs.
