The current 2.6 prepatch remains 2.6.17-rc6
; no prepatches have been
released over the past week. A few dozen fixes have been merged into the
mainline repository since -rc6 was released, but the pace has slowed
considerably. The 2.6.17 final release may well happen in the near future.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.17-rc6-mm2. Recent changes
to -mm include a new statistics infrastructure for the memory management
subsystem, virtualized namespaces for SYSV interprocess communications
primitives, and some lock validator work.
