    SubjectLinux 2.6.39-rc4
    So things have sadly not continued to calm down even further. We had
    more commits in -rc4 than we had in -rc3, and I sincerely hope that
    upward trend doesn't continue.

    That said, so far the only thing that has really caused problems this
    release cycle has been the block layer plugging changes, and as of
    -rc4 the issues we had with MD should hopefully now be behind us. So
    we're making progress on that front too.

    The plugging code still seems to trigger some issue with what looks
    like an infinite stream of disk-change notifications on CD-ROMs - but
    Jens is hopefully going to squish that problem soon. In the meantime,
    you can avoid the problem by either running SMP or having preemption

    Other than that? We may have a bit more commits than in -rc3, but it
    hasn't been _too_ bad. There's certainly nothing overly exciting:
    aside from the block/MD fixups, we've got some filesystem updates
    (btrfs, cifs and ubifs) and some driver updates (the largest chunk of
    which is actually a duplicate driver removal). USB, some KMS, nothing
    really earthshaking.

    Shortlog appended for the curious.
