LXer: Linux: 2.6.17-rc2, All Quiet on the Kernel Front

Published at LXer:

Linus Torvalds uploaded the 2.6.17-rc2 kernel, explaining that he usually releases -rc kernels weekly but due to travel and general quiet he waited longer, "I expect to be back to the weekly schedule now, even if it is quiet (which I hope it will be)." Read on for the shortlog which includes a list of all changes in the -rc2 patch. Linus also offered a quick summary of the changes:"Not a lot of hugely interesting stuff, with a large portion of the diff being a late MIPS update (tssk tssk), and the huge diff from the long over-due removal of the Sangoma wan drivers that have been marked BROKEN for a long time. Same goes for the qlogicfc driver (which has been supplanted by the qla2xxx driver)."As a result, the diff has just tons of deletions, even if most of the rest of the changes aren't all that big. But there are netfilter fixes, some more splice work, and just tons of random stuff: usb, scsi, knfsd, fuse, infiniband.."
