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.
