Linux 2.6.25-rc1

,----[ Quote ]
| Ok, it's a bloody large -rc (as was 24-rc1, for that matter), probably
| because the 2.6.24 release cycle dragged out, so people had a lot of
| things pending.
|
| The full diff is something like 11MB and 1.4M lines of diffs, with the
| bulk of the stuff being in architecture updates and drivers.

Core Driver Patches in the 2.6.25 Merge Window

,----[ Quote ]
| Prefacing a series of 196 patches, Greg KH noted, "due to the low level
| nature of these patches, and because they touch so many different parts of
| the kernel, a number of the subsystem maintainers have asked me to get them
| in first to make merging other trees easier." Linus Torvalds agreed and
| quickly merged the patches into his tree.
