The release of the Linux 2.6.23 kernel is quickly approaching and yesterday afternoon Linus Torvalds had released the 2.6.23-rc6 kernel. Last week was the Linux Kernel Summit (this week is the X Developer Summit) and immediately prior to this summit Linus had put out the 2.6.23-rc5 kernel; however, two nasty bugs had arose in that testing release. The missing NULL pointer and a missing list terminator in ata_piix are now corrected in the 2.6.23-rc6 kernel. This release also contains a few other updates but mostly comes down to XFS, NFS, scheduler, and m32r work. Read the announcement at LKML.org.
