Linux 2.6.33-rc3 Released

It's been quiet due to the holidays, so -rc3 is reasonably small despite being a few days over the normal one-week mark. And most of the changes are pretty trivial, although both ext4 and reiserfs had some trouble in -rc2, hopefully all fixed now.

The bulk of the patches are some SH defconfig updates (40%), but ignoring those we have the normal "half drivers, half everything else" pattern. On the driver front, the perhaps most notable change is not so much a code change, but the small change of marking the "new" firewire stack as being the recommended one.

Wireless drivers, regular network drivers, filesystems, input layer.

And here's to hoping one reason it's been quiet is that it's actually been fairly stable. Give it a try,

Linus
