New kernel boosts embedded

Linus Benedict Torvalds today blessed the 2.6.27 kernel, making the release official after nine "release candidate" iterations. For embedded hackers, the new kernel offers "Ftrace" and "Sysprof" trace tools, a new "UBIFS" flash filesystem, and support for network drivers with multiple transmit queues, among other enhancements.
