  To: linux-kernel, Andrew Morton, torvalds, stable

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the kernel.
It contains one serious fix for the w83627ehf.c hardware monitoring
driver.  If you use this driver, PLEASE, upgrade to this kernel version.
To quote the developer, Jean Delvare:
	I have had a private report that this bug might have caused
	permanent hardware damage. There is no definitive proof at this
	point, but unfortunately due to the lack of documentation I
	really can't rule it out.
This problem only affects the 2.6.23 kernel releases, it is not present
on any prior release, or on the 2.6.24 upcoming release, as this fix is
already in Linus's tree.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between and

The updated 2.6.23.y git tree can be found at:
and can be browsed at the normal git web browser:;a=summary
