The current 2.6.10 prepatch remains 2.6.10-rc1
; no new kernel
prepatches have been released since October 22.
Patches continue to accumulate in Linus's BitKeeper repository; they
include the ext3 block reservation and online resizing patches, sysfs backing store, locking behavior
annotations for the "sparse" utility, a reworking of spin lock
initialization (see below), the un-exporting of add_timer_on(),
sys_lseek(), and a number of other kernel functions, an x86 signal
delivery optimization, an IDE update, I/O space
write barrier support, a frame buffer driver update, more scheduler
tweaks, some big kernel lock preemption patches, an IDE update, a large
number of architecture updates, and lots of fixes.
The current prepatch from Andrew Morton is 2.6.10-rc1-mm2. Recent changes to -mm include
the kswapd high-order page freeing patch, a
new PCMCIA device model integration patch, some scheduler tweaks, a generic
CPU time abstraction (which comes from the S/390 port), and various fixes.
The current 2.4 prepatch is still 2.4.28-rc1; Marcelo has released
no prepatches since October 22.
