The current 2.6 prepatch is 2.6.22-rc1
by Linus on
May 12. Features added to 2.6.22 since last week's Kernel Page
include the eventfd system
, a new IEEE 1394 ("Firewire") stack "designed for robustness and
simplicity," drivers for KingSun DS-620 USB-IrDA dongles, Native
Instruments USB audio devices, and WM8753 audio codecs (as found in the
OpenMoko phone), a large set of fixes to the "libertas" wireless driver,
and support for a number of new ARM processors. See the short-form changelog
for the details, or
for vast amounts of detail.
As of this writing, about 100 changesets (almost all fixes) have been added
to the mainline repository since 2.6.22-rc1.
The current -mm tree is 2.6.22-rc1-mm1. Recent changes
to -mm include a number of filesystem writeback fixes, a CRC7
implementation, an improved version of the swap prefetch code, and an early
startup development tree for the i386 architecture.
