Yes, I try to not merge too much material late in the -rcs and in the merge
window.  Often it's not practical to merge things anyway, because people
prepare patches against mainline, which is ancient history...

I wouldn't bother, really.  Let's just get it as good as we can and slam it

I'm just about finished compilation-testing for 2.6.24-mm1 which is a
shame.  Please do a best-effort against 2.6.24-mm1 (hopefully I'll get that
out tomorrow) and I'll slip it into -rc1 if it gets through cross-build
testing without unfixable-with-my-patience-level problems.
