Subject:  2.6.11-rc5
Date:  Wed, 23 Feb 2005 20:18:08 -0800 (PST)
Archive-link:  Article, Thread

Hey, I hoped -rc4 was the last one, but we had some laptop resource
conflicts, various ppc TLB flush issues, some possible stack overflows in
networking and a number of other details warranting a quick -rc5 before
the final 2.6.11.

This time it's really supposed to be a quickie, so people who can, please 
check it out, and we'll make the real 2.6.11 asap.

Mostly pretty small changes (the largest is a new SATA driver that crept
in, our bad). But worth another quick round.
