Na de release van test10 van de 2.6.0 Linux Kernel heeft Linus zeer snel test11 vrijgegeven. Hierin worden een aantal bugfixes toegepast op onder andere SCSI en IEEE-1394 onderdelen. Het changelog is slechts 8 KB groot, de release notes zien er als volgt uit:
for everybody who thought "stoned beaver" wasn't an appropriate name for a kernel (yeah, I'm sure IBM really minds my naming scheme, and is deathly afraid it will scare away customers), I'm happy to tell you that the beaver just went into detox, and I'm taking the Thanksgiving weekend off.
I give you "Beaver in Detox", aka linux-2.6.0-test11. This is mainly brought on by the fact that the old aic7xxx driver was broken in -test10, and Ingo found this really evil test program that showed an error case in do_fork() that we had never handled right. Well, duh!
While at it, this also pulls in some firewire fixes and a few potential skbuff leakage points.
Please don't even bother sending me patches, because I'll be stuffing my face away from email over the next few days. And after that it will be up to Andrew to say how to go on from here.
