What I did to double-check was:
git log fs/namei.c
to find the commit series by Al (obviously, you can do it other ways too,
but that was the easy way). Then, when you find the commit just do
git name-rev 1f36f774b22a0ceb7dd33eca626746c81a97b6a5
which gives us
ie that commit is reachable from v2.6.34-rc1, not from any stable kernel.
(Or alternatively, use "git describe", and get "v2.6.33-5088-g1f36f77",
which means that it is v2.6.33 plus 5088 commits).
And as usual, there are other ways. One particularly obscure one is to say
git log --tags --source --author=viro fs/namei.c
which basically says "show only commits by viro in fs/namei.c, start from
all tags, and for each commit, show _which_ tag the commit was reached
from". It's not perfect, but it does it in one go. With "--oneline", you'd
have gotten a listing like
3e297b6 v2.6.34-rc3 Restore LOOKUP_DIRECTORY hint handling in final lookup on open()
781b167 v2.6.34-rc2 Fix a dumb typo - use of & instead of &&
1f36f77 v2.6.34-rc2 Switch !O_CREAT case to use of do_last()
def4af3 v2.6.34-rc2 Get rid of symlink body copying
3866248 v2.6.34-rc2 Finish pulling of -ESTALE handling to upper level in do_filp_open()
806b681 v2.6.34-rc2 Turn do_link spaghetty into a normal loop
10fa8e6 v2.6.34-rc2 Unify exits in O_CREAT handling
9e67f36 v2.6.34-rc2 Kill is_link argument of do_last()
so you see into which -rc the different patches from Al went.
