LXer: Linux: 2.6.20-rc3 Fixes Corruption Bug

Published at LXer:

A few hours before the new year, Linus Torvalds released the 2.6.20-rc3 Linux kernel,"in order to not get in trouble with MADR ("Mothers Against Drunk Releases") I decided to cut the 2.6.20-rc3 release early rather than wait for midnight, because it's bound to be new years _somewhere_ out there. So here's to a happy 2007 for everybody." In good humor, he noted that the new kernel would be available on all the mirrors by the time everyone's New Years celebrations had concluded,"it's probably going to be up-to-date by the time the hangovers are mostly gone. At which point the first thing on any self-respecting geek's mind should obviously be:'is there a new kernel release for me to try?'" Regarding the changes in the new release candidate, which include a data corruption fix [story], Linus summarized:"The big thing at least for me personally is that nasty shared mmap corruption fix, but there's a number of other changes in here, many of them just documentation (and some media and network drivers). Shortlog and diffstat appended."read more
