SubjectLinux 3.1-rc9
Another week, another -rc.

On the kernel front, not a huge amount of changes. That said, by now,
there had better not be - and I definitely wouldn't have minded having
even fewer changes. But the fixes that are here are generally pretty
small, and the diffstat really doesn't look all that scary - there
really aren't *big* changes anywhere.

The things that do stand out a bit: some DRM fixes (radeon and i915),
various network drivers, some ceph fixes - and just lots of random
small stuff. The sparc updates are tiny (T4/T5 detection), but even so
are the bulk of the arch changes, things really have been that quiet.

The more noticeable change isn't actually to the code at all, it's
that is starting to have parts of it come up again, so you
can now find the kernel sources back in the traditional location:


(although I am also updating github in case you cloned from there, so
you don't *have* to change).

Also, since I now have a new stronger gpg key, and that new key
actually ends up being signed by more people than the old one ever was
(at least people I *know*), I decided I might as well switch to that
one. So if you are the kind of person who verifies tags, you may want
to do

gpg --recv-keys 00411886

to get my new key, so that "git verify-tag" will work for you.

(Key fingerprint = ABAF 11C6 5A29 70B1 30AB E3C4 79BE 3E43 0041 1886)

Obviously, in order to trust that that is actually really my key
rather than just blindly believe this email that could easily have
been faked by some Linux wannabe), you'd need to check it. But since
it's signed with my old tag signing key, you shouldn't have any more
trust issues with the new one than you should have with the old key.
Or you can try to follow the chain of trust of the other key signers -
some of them have way more signatures than I ever had and are pretty
well connected.

Anything else worth mentioning? Hopefully the PCIe issues with MPS
tuning are all behind us, for the simple reason that we just disabled
them for now, and will revisit it for 3.2. And the occasional oopses
with USB disk removal should now be fixed once and for all (knock
wood). Anything else should be really esoteric and device-specific,
you can get a feel for it in the shortlog.

Go forth and test,
