Linux 2.6.39-rc2

Subject:  Linux 2.6.39-rc2

Message-ID:  <>
Archive-link:  Article

It's been an uncommonly calm -rc2, which should make me really happy,
but quite honestly just makes me really suspicious.

You guys are up to something, aren't you?

Anyway, 35% arch (ARM and power, some unicore32 cleanups), 35% drivers
(net, input and some drm), and 30% random (doc updates, perf, net,
btrfs). Because it's such a small -rc, I'm appending the shortlog,
something I usually don't get to do until -rc3 or -rc4.

This should hopefully fix up the most annoying -rc1 problems. We had a
couple, like the plugging issues with the IDE layer, causing some
machines to not boot. Or the tty-full-and-hung one. And just the small
fallout from the irq cleanups (which affected a couple of less common

But on the whole really not a lot. Which is sincerely _hope_ is a sign
that 2.6.39 is going to be a simple release.

Knock wood. Go out and test,
