Linux 2.6.32-rc5 Released

As mentioned in the -rc4 notes, this was a short week for the -rc series, since I'm leaving for the yearly kernel summit tomorrow morning. And obviously a lot of other kernel maintainers have left or will be leaving shortly, so I'd expect/hope that next week will be quiet too.

90% of the bulk of the changes since -rc4 are in drivers, with most of it coming from two new network drivers (stmmac and vmxnet3). But apart from the new drivers, there's almost 300 commits in there, and most of them are pretty spread our random one- (or few-) liners: arch updates (arm, powerpc, x86), some filesystem updates (mainly btrfs), and some documentation, networking etc.

[ Git tip of the day: if somebody wants to really see the size of patches, do something like

	git log --no-merges --oneline --numstat -M v2.6.32-rc4..v2.6.32-rc5

and you'll get a reasonable view of the patches with number of lines added and removed. You'll see how the commits that add the new drivers really stand out, while the other commits really are largely "just a few lines" each. ]

A few regressions fixed, and hopefully no new ones added ("Oh, yeah, like that ever happens").

Go wild,

Linus
