The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.11-rc2
by Linus on January 21.
Changes this time around include some networking updates (including a "fix"
for a NETIF_F_LLTX
race condition which was subsequently
withdrawn), an ALSA update (to version 1.0.8), some enhancements to the
"circular pipe buffers" code introduced in -rc1, the ioctl()
method rework, in-inode extended attributes for ext3, some additions to the
completion API, some spinlock changes, and fixes for the latest round of
security problems. The long-format
has the details.
The flow of patches into Linus's BitKeeper repository has slowed as things
begin to stabilize for the 2.6.11 release. Changes merged since -rc2
include some architecture updates, the removal of bcopy(), a fix
for writable module parameters in sysfs (it never actually worked before),
and various fixes.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.11-rc2-mm1.
Recent changes to -mm include some random driver reworking, the POSIX
high-resolution timers patch set, ACL support for the NFS client, the
isochronous CPU scheduler (see below), and some crypto API work.
The current 2.4 kernel is 2.4.29; no 2.4.30 prepatches have been
to post comments)
