The current stable 2.6 kernel is 18.104.22.168
on November 24.
This release contains a fair number of patches with important fixes.
The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.15-rc3, released by Linus on
November 28. It consists
mostly of fixes, as is appropriate at this stage of the kernel process, but
there is also the VM_UNPAGED work discussed on last week's Kernel Page
(somewhat reworked by Linus since then). See the long-format changelog for the details.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.15-rc3-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm include some architecture updates, "trusted computing" BIOS
measurement support, an MD update, the dynamic USB ID patch, some
memory management tweaks, and a device mapper update.
