kernel 2.6.25-rc4 の考察(20080305更新)


List: linux-kernel
Subject: Linux 2.6.25-rc4
From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds () linux-foundation ! org>

It's a few days late, but I was waiting for some updates for some of the
most annoying regressions until releasing it, so the end result is
hopefully more useful as a result.

In particular, the block layer changes should hopefully have sorted
themselves out, and CD burning etc hopefully works for people again. Same
goes for the the scheduler regressions, and a number of annoying boot-time

In short, if you had any issues, please do test, and make sure that the
regression list gets updated (whether fixed or not).

The dirstat shows that (as usual) most of the changes are in drivers and
arch (~51% and ~17% respectively), with about half the driver updates
being in network drivers. Full details for those who care:

2.0% Documentation/
3.6% arch/blackfin/
3.6% arch/cris/
2.3% arch/sparc/kernel/
2.8% arch/x86/
17.3% arch/
2.1% drivers/char/
7.0% drivers/dma/
3.0% drivers/firewire/
24.0% drivers/net/
50.6% drivers/
5.6% fs/cifs/ 9.4% fs/
3.6% include/
5.2% kernel/
3.9% mm/
2.5% net/

but in general, it's really a fair amount of small changes spread all
over, with most of the changes being quite small (604 commits, most of
them small, with the BNX2X network driver being and the new fsldma driver
the only one that got some bigger changes).

So give it all a good testing,
