Once more before the storm. The stable patch storm, anyway.
It’s hopefully (almost certainly) the last -rc before the final 2.6.22 release, and we should be in pretty good shape. The flow of patches has really slowed down and the regression list has shrunk a lot.
The shortlog/diffstat reflects that, with the biggest part of the -rc7 patch being literally just a power defconfig update.
The patches are mostly trivial fixes, a few new device ID’s, and the appended shortlog really does pretty much explain it.
Final testing always appreciated, of course,
There’s nothing like the smell of Linux kernel news early in the morning.
