Linus Torvalds has a week after the release of Linux 2.6.32-rc1, a new release candidate for this Linux kernel is available. However, it's not Linux 2.6.32-rc2 but actually Linux 2.6.32-rc3, due to a bug in the -rc1 "Makefile" calling it actually -rc2 at the time. Anyhow, this update contains a variety of fixes through the usual drivers, file-systems, architectures, and more. The Linux 2.6.32-rc3 release announcement can be read at LKML.org.
