[ANNOUNCE] 3.6.6-rt17

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Dear RT Folks,

I'm pleased to announce the 3.6.6-rt17 release. 3.6.6-rt16 is just a
not announced update release to 3.6.6.

Changes since 3.6.6-rt16:

   * Finally make the NOHZ softirq pending detection work with the new
     softirq scheme.

   * Remove the WARN_ON from __raise_softirq_irqoff(). I got the
     information I want for now.

The delta patch against 3.6.6-rt16 is appended below and can be found
here:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/incr/patch-3.6.6-rt16-rt17.patch.xz

The RT patch against 3.6.6 can be found here:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/patch-3.6.6-rt17.patch.xz

The split quilt queue is available at:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/patches-3.6.6-rt17.tar.xz

Enjoy,

	tglx
