Linux 2.6.27 released with all the bits covered in last month's report. It
did however miss two important fixes for regressions that a few people hit.
22.214.171.124 or later are recommended for use with XFS.
In the meantime the generic btree implementation, the sync reorganization
and after a lot of merge pain the XFS and VFS inode unification hit the
development tree during the time allocated for the merge window. No XFS
updates other than the two regression fixes also in 126.96.36.199 have made it
into mainline as of 2.6.28-rc3.
The only new feature on the list in October is support for the fiemap
interface that has been added to the VFS during the 2.6.28 merge window.
However there was lot of patch traffic consisting of fixes and respun
versions of previously known patches. There still is a large backlog of
patches on the list that is not applied to the development tree yet.
