The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.21-rc3
by Linus on
March 6. It contains quite a few fixes and some KVM enhancements.
Says Linus: "...there's some hope that it will work more widely than
-rc1 and -rc2 did.
" The long-form
has the details.
As of this writing, no patches have been merged into the mainline git
repository since -rc3 was released.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.21-rc2-mm2. Recent changes
to -mm include a set of memory anti-fragmentation patches (see below), the
dropping of the buffered filesystem I/O patches, the Devicescape wireless stack (now rebranded "mac80211"),
and a new krealloc()
memory allocation function.
For older kernels: 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 were released on
March 2. They contain a fair number of fixes, at least one of which
is security-related. "Barring anything major, there will not be any
more 2.6.19 releases. If you disagree with this, please let the stable
team know about the patches that you feel must be in a new release. We
need to move on to flushing out the very large backlog of 2.6.20-stable
18.104.22.168-rc1 was released on
