    SubjectLinux 2.6.38-rc6
    Hmm. Another week, another -rc. This one has the fix for the rather
    annoying (but also very rare) memory corruption that we were battling
    for a couple of weeks - but since I suspect only two people ever saw
    it, I doubt most of you care. It was a big relief for _me_ to have it
    resolved, though, so I'll mention it anyway. There's another patch for
    a related issue pending, it will go in soon.

    Diff-wise, the most noticeable thing here is removal of the /proc
    interface from the target code (so that we don't make a release with
    deprecated interfaces). But ignoring that (and some arm mach/map.h
    cleanup patches), the diffs really are pretty small.

    But what is probably actually noticeable is a lot of small fixups,
    mostly in drivers. Nothing really exciting, I'm afraid. Or not afraid,
    since excitement at this stage in the -rc series is a bad thing.

    I do want to remind developers to please take a look at Rafael's
    latest regression list (I particularly care for the "since 2.6.37",
    but I feel compelled to ask people to look at the 36->37 regression
    list too.

    And for the people who actually reported the regressions (or didn't,
    but have found new ones) - please do update the status of the
    regression. Some of them I'm really feel a lot more happy about if
    they had a note that "yes, I tested with -rc6, and the problem is
    still there". We've fixed a fair number of problems, so it's always
    good to have regression reporters ping us with something like "hey,
    I'm still here, and you may have fixed all those other things, but you
    didn't fix my issue".
