[stable] [patch 00/67] 2.6.18-stable review

Post by Greg K » Sat, 14 Oct 2006 01:50:08


The header file stuff was intentionally added, as it is good to have the
header files exported properly. Those were a large number of these
patches.

If you have specific questions about any one patch, please let us know.
I didn't purposefully take any "cleanup" type patch that I know of, but
there was a lot here, so one might have slipped in...

thanks,

Indeed. I see this as just 'finishing the job' rather than fixing something
that's busted though. That said, I was also carrying these in what will
be our 2.6.18 based update kernel for FC5 (and what will be FC6) for the
same reasons.
