Yeah, don't remind me - it's late.
There was nothng in particular holding this thing up, I just basically
just forgot to cut a -rc2 release last week.
There's not a lot of hugely exciting stuff here. Some arch updates: MIPS,
arm, blackfin, x86, sparc, sh, s390..
Also various driver updates: libata, IDE, networking, DVB.. And some more
fallout from the scatter-gather changes.
Some scheduler cleanups, and also fixing the CPU usage statistics that
got scrogged at some point.
Nothing really earthshattering that I can recall or see. A lot of it is
small buglets and compiler warnings (and occasionally broken builds). The
shortlog is still slightly too large for the mailing list limit, so you
need to generate it either from the full log (posted on the normal sites)
git shortlog v2.6.24-rc1..
but quite frankly, it's no Leo Tolstoy. If you have trouble falling
asleep, you might try to print it out and take it to bed with you: it's
not going to be more than just a couple of pages ("use 2nup and save a
tree"), but I dare you to actually get to the end. Snooze city.
It's full of such *riveting* entries like:
x86: voyager: fix bogus conversion to per_cpu for boot_cpu_info
mmc: sg fallout
x86 gart: rename iommu.h to gart.h
Mauro Carvalho Chehab:
V4L/DVB (6390): Updates missing entries at CARDLIST.em28xx
[MIPS] Alchemy: Nuke homebrew setup_irq(), it's broken and unnecessary.
[IA64] fix typo in per_cpu_offset
and yes, I just picked those out randomly.
