Kernel Log: Coming in 2.6.39 (Part 3) - Architecture and infrastructure
On Wednesday morning, Linus Torvalds released the sixth release candidate of Linux kernel 2.6.39. It contains several mostly minor changes. Torvalds says kernel developers are still looking into a number of problems, so it will not be the last RC, and it will probably be more than 10 days before 2.6.39 is released.
Prompted by the progress in 2.6.39, the Kernel Log is taking this opportunity to continue the mini-series "Coming in 2.6.39" with a description of the innovations in the kernel's infrastructure and architecture code. The first part dealt with changes to network drivers and infrastructure; the second, with storage and file system code. An article on drivers will follow next week.
