    SubjectLinux 3.1-rc7
    I was supposed to do this on Monday, but it didn't seem to be hugely pressing.

    Not only were there some patches under discussion, it is becoming
    clear that I might as well not release the final 3.1 until after my
    upcoming vacation early October - otherwise the next merge window
    would just be total chaos. A merge window with being off
    just really wouldn't work, and doing a release only to then have some
    chaotic merge window followed by travel seems crazy.

    So here we are, two days late, but in no hurry.

    We've actually fixed a few core regressions - they may not be easy to
    hit (which is why it took so long), but we had a nasty dentry bug
    (fixed by the first commit in the shortlog below) that admittedly was
    only triggerable with NFS and some odd directory movement, but it was
    still interesting to see something like that at this stage. Some
    rather subtle dentry refcounting rules had resulted in an "obvious
    cleanup" having broken a subtle rule about dentry parent lifetimes

    We had some other "core" stuff too (wasting time looping over swap
    page entries in find_get_pages), but as you can see from the shortlog,
    most of it ends up being pretty peripheral. Mostly random driver
    fixes, which is also backed up by the diffstat - 60% drivers, 8%
    networking, 7% arch (arm and UM), 7% filesystem, 5% mm, random small
    patches elsewhere.
