The current 2.6 prepatch remains 2.6.23-rc1
, no prepatches have been
released over the last week. Well over 500 changesets have been merged
into the mainline git repository since -rc1, though, and the -rc2 release
is overdue. The changes are mostly fixes, but there is also the addition
of the "literate" Lguest documentation, a mechanism where kernel-space code
can request notification when it is about to be preempted from the CPU, new
configuration options for software suspend and hibernation, the removal of
support for SuperH sh73180 and 7300 CPUs, AMD Geode LX framebuffer support,
the removal of the arm26 port, and a TCP congestion control API change
gets the round-trip time in microseconds now).
The current -mm tree is 2.6.23-rc1-mm2. Recent changes
to -mm include support for multiple netconsole targets, a Sonics Silicon
backplane subsystem, and a bunch of reiser4 fixes.
For older kernels: 184.108.40.206 was released on
July 25 with about a dozen fixes. 2.4.35 was released on
July 26 with a number of backported drivers and fixes.
