The current 2.6 development kernel is 2.6.28-rc3
on November 2. It
contains the usual pile of fixes, along with the removal of the (now
and new drivers for Elantech (EeePC) touchpads, and Intel X38 memory
Also merged was a
driver API change; drivers which support FASYNC no longer need to make
a final call to fasync_helper() at release time.
As of this writing, a few dozen post-rc3 patches have been merged into the
mainline repository. Along with the fixes is a new I/O memory mapping API
for graphics drivers; see the separate article below for details.
