Staging tree status for the .33 kernel merge

,----[ Quote ]
| This was originally sent to the linux-kernel 
| and driver-devel mailing lists. Might as well 
| post it here to get a wider audience as the 
| last report was received well.
| Here's a summary of the state of the 
| drivers/staging/ tree, basically what will be 
| coming in the 2.6.33 merge, and what the status 
| of the different drivers are so far.



Kernel Log: Linux 2.6.33 enters test phase

,----[ Quote ]
| With the end of the next kernel version's
| main development phase, the most important
| new features of Linux 2.6.33 have been
| determined: DRBD, Nouveau, support of the
| Trim ATA command and a bandwidth controller
| for block devices. The developers have also
| improved the Radeon drivers and the support
| of Intel Wi-Fi chips. New stable kernels
| also fix a vulnerability in the code of
| Ext4, but will shortly be superseded by
| even more current versions.

| Talking about the merge window: there were a
| _lot_ of trees that left their pull requests
| pretty dang late. Not everything I merged
| yesterday and today were late pull requests,
| but a lot of it was. I'm used to have a
| fairly busy last day of the merge window, but
| it was a busy last two days  this time -
| definitely worse than usual.


Kernel Log: New stable kernels, 2.6.33 with DRBD and RT2800PCI

,----[ Quote ]
| Kernel versions, and
| offer minor improvements and correct
| several bugs â including one security hole.
| Torvalds has already incorporated more than
| 5,000 changes for Linux 2.6.33. Its merge
| window will probably be open for just over
| another week. Various developers are working
| on significant improvements to the open source
| Radeon graphics drivers.


A Great Present In The Linux 2.6.33 Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| David Airlie has just called upon Linus
| Torvalds to pull in the latest DRM patches
| for inclusion into the Linux 2.6.33 kernel.
| The Direct Rendering Manager improvements in
| this next kernel release will be
| particularly interesting and are perhaps as
| significant as earlier kernels that had
| introduced kernel mode-setting support for
| Intel and ATI/AMD hardware along with in-
| kernel memory management. The changes that
| the Linux 2.6.33 kernel will bring are
| aplenty and will impact almost all of those
| using an open-source graphics driver stack.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
