on May 30. It
contains a single fix for an information leak in the netfilter code.
The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.17-rc5, released by Linus on
May 24. With luck, this will be the final prepatch before the final
2.6.17 release. It consists of a fair number of fixes; see the long-format changelog for
Several dozen patches (all fixes) have found their way into the mainline
after the -rc5 release.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.17-rc5-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm include the generic IRQ
layer, an updated version of reiser4, the lock validator (see below),
the adaptive readahead patch
set, a new infrastructure for maintaining kernel statistics, and a new
kernel API for inotify.
