The x86 merger has happened, so the miscellaneous topics page has been updated accordingly. While I was at it, I added an entry on KGDB - another attempt to get interactive debugger support into the mainline kernel.
SMACK is a simplified mandatory access control module for Linux. It seems likely at this point that SMACK will have the honor of being the first such module to join SELinux in the mainline kernel. So I added an entry on the security page about it.
A number of people remarked that the Linux Platform Weather Forecast had become rather too large to read comfortably on a single page. So I’ve split it up into several sub-sections. Most of the content is the same, though there are a couple of exceptions:
The current prepatch is 2.6.23-rc7
I changed the forecasts for 2.6.24 a bit; this is beginning to come a little more into focus as the merge window gets closer.
Noted the timerfd() difficulties
Made the timeframe for syslets more pessimistic.
Added another article reference to the large block section.
