SubjectLinux 2.6.38
Not a lot of changes since -rc8. Most notably perhaps some late nfs
and btrfs work, and a mips update. Along with some more vfs RCU lookup
fallout (which would only be noticeable with the filesystem exported
with nfsd, which is why nobody ever noticed).

And the usual driver updates, mostly media and GPU, but some
networking too. The appended shortlog is for the changes since -rc8,
and gives some feel for it. Nothing really too exciting, I think.

As to the "big picture", ie all the changes since 2.6.37, my personal
favorite remains the VFS name lookup changes. They did end up causing
some breakage, and Al has made it clear that he wants more cleanups,
but on the whole I think it was surprisingly smooth. I think we had
more problems with random other components (nasty memory corruption in
networking etc) than with the rather fundamental path lookup change.

So I'm hoping this ends up being a fairly calm release despite some
really deep changes like that.
