The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.11-rc4
by Linus on February 12. This
prepatch, intended to be the last before 2.6.11 is released, is dominated
by small fixes; it also contains some architecture updates, a serial ATA
blacklist (for poorly-behaved drives), some extra checking for
calls (covered in last week's Kernel Page
), a largish Radeon
framebuffer update, and an IDE update.
The long-format changelog
has the details.
Linus's BitKeeper repository contains a handful of fixes, including a patch
for a few memset() calls in the S/390 code which had the arguments
reversed - and somehow seemed to work anyway.
The current -mm prepatch is 2.6.11-rc3-mm2. Recent changes to -mm include
the addition of the realtime Linux security module, an NFS update, and
The current 2.4 prepatch is 2.4.30-pre1, released by Marcelo on
February 10. As would be expected for a kernel in deep maintenance
mode, this prepatch contains a relatively small set of fixes and a couple
of driver updates.
