Kiedy pojawi się kernel 2.6.0? Nie wiem dokładnie. Wiem za to, że aby drzewo 2.5.x zostało uznane za stabilne, musi zostać dokładnie przetestowane.

Prace nad 2.5.x trwają już niepierwszy miesiąc i wszystko zaczyna wyglądać nawet całkiem stabilnie. Pora zabrać się za testowanie na własnym komputerze. Oczywiście, nie jest dobrym pomysłem instalowanie 2.5.66 na firmowym serwerze i odpuszczenie sobie robienia backupów, ale na jakiejś nieużywanej maszynie – czemu nie?

Idealną okazją do rozpoczęcia testów jest pojawienie się Linuksa 2.5.66, który w poniedziałek trafił na serwery. Skrótową listę zmian można podejrzeć poniżej, jest tego naprawdę dużo. Nowe jądro można skopiować z Kernel.org, można też użyć niewolnego BitKeepera. Aby ściągnąć pełne źródła tą drugą metodą, trzeba wydać komendę bk clone -q http://linux.bkbits.net/linux-2.5 linus-2.5. Po chwili – krótszej lub dłuższej, zależy od szybkości łącza, w katalogu linux-2.5 będziemy mieli ponad sto megabajtów danych. Miłej kompilacji…

We wil use signals in the future instead    o [FBCON] Help clear margins for modes where the resolution does      quite fit the console size    o [TWIN TURBO FBDEV] Ported over to new api    o [SIS FBDEV] Make it compile as a module    o [SIS FBDEV] More sisfb driver updates    o [FBDEV] Standardized using xxfb for setup strings    o [SIS FBDEV] Added Maintiner for SIS fbdev driver    o [FBDEV] If a colormap contains no transparency information,      fb_set_cmap() calls fb_setcolreg() with trans = 0. This causes all      CLUT entries to be fully transparent on hardware that does have      transparency information in the CLUT registers.    o [FBDEV] Ug!!! For some reason BK keeps removing this change. I hope      this is the last time I have to add it    Jaroslav Kysela <perex@suse.cz>:    o ALSA update    o ALSA update (0.9.2)    Jason McMullan <jmcmullan@linuxcare.com>:    o USB HID: Ignore P5 Data Glove (2.4 and 2.5 patches)    Jeb Cramer <cramerj@intel.com>:    o [E1000] Documentation/networking/e1000.txt updates    o [E1000] Version, copyright, changelog and MAINTAINERS    o [E1000] Spd/dplx abstraction; eeprom size changes    o [E1000] IRQ registration fix    o [E1000] Added 82541 & 82547 support    o [E1000] Added MII support    o [E1000] Modulus math removed    o [E1000] Perform single PCI read per interrupt    o [E1000] Tx Descriptor cleanup    o [E1000] Read/Write register macro optimizations    o [E1000] Compaq to HP branding change    o [E1000] Whitespace changes    o [E1000] Added Tx FIFO flush routine    o [E1000] Added Interrupt Throttle Rate tuning support    o [E1000] Controller wake-up thru ASF fix    o [E1000] whitespace fix from previous patches    o [E1000] NAPI re-insertion w/ changes    Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@redhat.com>:    o [netdrvr tg3] fix memleak in DMA test    o [via-rhine] note that Roger is maintainer, in MAINTAINERS    Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>:    o cdrom buffer too small    o Check remailing length in ide-cd.c correctly    J
on Grimm <jgrimm2@us.ibm.com>:    o [IPSEC]: Fix SKB alloc len in ip6_build_xmit    o [SCTP] Add SCTP_SET_PEER_PRIMARY get/setsockopt    o [SCTP]  Supported address types should be based on pf_family    o [SCTP] Only consider C-E bundling up until C-E has been sent    o [SCTP] Fix typo in tsnmap.c  (Norbert Kiesel)    o [SCTP] Add SCTP_NODELAY sockopt and message delay (ardelle.fan)    o [SCTP] Fix out_qlen (pending data) count    o [SCTP] Receiver SWS prevention    o [SCTP] Fix panic on close()    Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>:    o Request queue micropatch    Joshua Uziel <uzi@uzix.org>:    o [SPARC64]: Fix up_clock_tick export    KANDA Mitsuru <mk@linux-ipv6.org>:    o [IPV6]: Process all extension headers via ipproto->handler    Linus Torvalds <torvalds@home.transmeta.com>:    o Fix a rather theoretical race if an NMI happens when a debug fault      happens exactly on the sysenter entry path before the kernel stacks      have been switched to the proper ones.    o Fix sound driver timeout types. Again    o Avoid warning with modern gcc's in xfrm_policy.c    o Alan broke the build. Fix it thusly    o Use '#ifdef' instead of '#if' to test CONFIG_xxxx variables. It      works both ways, but anal compilers will warn about using      identifiers that have never been defined in preprocessor expression      statements.    o Use '#ifdef' to check for CONFIG_xxx definitions    o Avoid using the gcc-ism of creating an anonymous structure directly      by having a cast followed by an initializer. It seems even gcc      can't do it right anyway in some versions (as reported by Jens      Axboe).    Luis F. Ortiz <lfo@polyad.org>:    o [SPARC64]: Define IDE MAX_HWIFS like x86    Matthew Wilcox <willy@debian.org>:    o PARISC update    o [NET]: Optimize handling of CONFIG_NET=n    Nathan Scott <nathans@sgi.com>:    o [XFS] First stage of behavior code cleanup - removes a bunch of      unused macros related to read/write locking the behavior change.    o [XFS] Export end_buffer_async_write, needed for unwritten extent      support in XFS    o [XFS] Implement support for unwritten extents in XFS    o [XFS] Find more appropriate homes for uuid_t, timespec_t and      xfs_dirent_t defs    o [XFS] Remove unneeded initialisations to zero, formatting cleanups,      remove a no-longer-correct-comment, fix up symlink error path code,      several minor changes to help keep this code more in sync with 2.4.    o [XFS] Fix permission checks for some ioctls.  Its now possible for      ordinary users to use the preallocation calls if unwritten extents      are enabled, and a couple of places where we were allowing      operations if unwritten extents are enabled, but shouldn't have      been, have been closed up.    Neil Brown <neilb@cse.unsw.edu.au>:    o Fix a few MD bugs    o Remove obsolete NFSD syscall varients    Oleg Drokin <green@linuxhacker.ru>:    o USB: Memleak in drivers/usb/hub.c::usb_reset_device    Oliver Neukum <oliver@neukum.name>:    o USB: fix to synchronous API regarding memory allocation    Osamu Tomita <tomita@cinet.co.jp>:    o Support PC-9800 subarchitecture (9/14) NIC    Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>:    o PPC32: Make a ppc32 version of pcibios_resource_to_bus, which adds      an offset where needed.    o PPC32: Makefile tidy-up, mostly from Sam Ravnborg    o PPC32: Fix asm/rtc.h so drivers/char/genrtc.c compiles    o PPC32: Convert uses of ide_ioreg_t to unsigned long    o PPC32: Fix ide_init_hwif_ports for powermac    o update macintosh-specific headers    o update via-cuda driver    o SMP-safe macserial driver    o update via-pmu driver    o update MESH scsi driver    o update mac53c94 scsi driver    o fix powerbook media bay    Petr Vandrovec <vandrove@vc.cvut.cz>:    o Fix ncpfs and rpcgss order in fs/Kconfig    Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@verizon.net>:    o USB: reduce stack usage in cdc-ether    o reduce stack in cdrom/optcd.c    o reduce stack in wireless/airo.c    Russell King <rmk@flint.arm.linux.org.uk>:    o [ARM] Minor updates/fixes to ARM PCI support code    o [ARM] Fix timeouts to use the correct type    o [ARM] Remove explicit IRQ disable/enable in PXA timer IRQ    o [ARM] Add typechecking to local_irq_save()    o [ARM] Update CLPS7500 support    o [ARM] Distinguish between the various oops messages better    o [ARM] Ensure transmitter starts before leaving ssp_write_word()    o [ARM] Fix more timeouts to use correct type    o [ARM] Add L1_CACHE_SHIFT to asm-arm/cache.h    o [ARM] Update Acorn SCSI drivers    o [ARM] Fix CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_GOV_USERSPACE warning    o [ARM] Remove head-netwinder.S    Scott Feldman <scott.feldman@intel.com>:    o [E100] back out memleak patch cuz it messed up following    o [E100] Update Documentation/networking/e100.txt    o [E100] update version, copyright year, changelog    o [E100] Spelling mistakes    o [E100] Add support for VLAN hw offload    o [E100] Clean up #include order    o [E100] Bug fix on setting up Tx csum    o [E100] Banish strong branding marketing strings    o [E100] forced speed/duplex link recover    o [E100] ICH5 support added    o [E100] Honor WOL settings in EEPROM    o [E100] interrupt handler free fix    o [E100] Validate updates to MAC address    o [E100] ethtool EEPROM and GSTRING fixes    o [E100] ASF wakeup enabled, but only if set in EEPROM    o [E1000] Increase default Rx descriptors to 256    Sridhar Samudrala <sri@us.ibm.com>:    o [SCTP] accept() support for TCP-style SCTP sockets    o [SCTP] Minor changes for tcp-style socket support    Stephen Lord <lord@sgi.com>:    o [XFS] initialize the iovec length in symlink cases    o [XFS] If cmn_err is called with a CR character at the end of the      input then do not add one.    o [XFS] remove _KERNEL from the flags used to turn macros into      functions    o [XFS] rework readdir to be closer to the irix model internally, do      all the filldir fixup at the linvfs layer. This is the V2 directory      component, the V1 code still needs fixing up. We now return the      same directory offsets as Irix does.    o [XFS] validate_fields is called on a vnode to update directory      related fields after a create/remove etc. Make sure we pass in all      the flags for the status fields we want. NBLOCKS was missing and      working by accident.    o [XFS] prevent readdir from returning offsets of more than 2^31,      these confuse user space. This limits the maximum amount of names      in a directory on linux to 2Gbytes, which should not be a problem.    o [XFS] remove a couple more sync transactions from xfs    o [XFS] fix a couple of kmem issues, check for OOM in kmem_relalloc      more and in the out of mem case, panic in the sleep case, not the       non-sleep case.    o [XFS] remove bad debug code    o [XFS] move vn_alloc stat from xfs_iget to vn_initialize    o [XFS] reduce byte swapping and spinlock usage in log write path    o [XFS] remove some unbounded loops from the unwritten and unmapped      page processing code. As files get larger, these code paths have      the potential to hog the cpu for long periods of time. Just cap the      unmapped page case, and the unwritten one is supposed to be      stopping at the end of the extent anyway.    Stephen Rothwell <sfr@canb.auug.org.au>:    o compat_uptr_t and compat_ptr    o [COMPAT] cleanups in net/compat.c and related files    o fix typo in compat_ptr    o another fix for compat_ptr    Steven Cole <elenstev@mesatop.com>:    o i2c: spelling corrections for drivers/i2c    Thomas Walpuski <thomas@bender.thinknerd.de>:    o [IPSEC]: Fix null authentication/encryption    Tom Lendacky <toml@us.ibm.com>:    o [IPSEC]: Add IPV6_{IPSEC,XFRM}_POLICY socket option support    o [IPSEC]: IPV6 source address not set correctly in xfrm_state    Ulrich Drepper <drepper@redhat.com>:    o more generic syscall return value type fixes
