We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.16.5 kernel.

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between
2.6.16.4 and 2.6.16.5, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.16.y git tree can be found at:
 	rsync://rsync.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.16.y.git
and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
	www.kernel.org/git/

thanks,

greg k-h
