    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.
