Subsystem Updates In Linux 2.6.24

On the horizon for the Linux 2.6.24 kernel are several driver, USB, and PCI subsystem updates. Greg Kroah-Hartman not only made news today about developing open-source drivers free of charge to companies willing to provide the needed technical information, but he has also issued the state of the Linux Driver Core, USB, and PCI subsystems. There are a number of updates planned for these three Linux subsystems that he is the maintainer of, especially for the Universal Serial Bus (USB) in the Linux 2.6.24 kernel. Greg's status reports (as of the Linux 2.6.23-rc8 kernel) for the Linux PCI, USB, and Driver Core subsystems can be read here, here, and here.

Linux 2.6.23-rc6 Kernel Released

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.

New Linux ACPI Tool Makes A Debut

Dave Jones, the lead Fedora kernel maintainer and Linux hacker, has released the first bits of code to a new project he has been working. This new tool, acpitool, decodes ACPI tables into something that is almost like a C syntax. It's far from complete but the latest code is available from his personal website with the acpitool release announcement taking place on Dave Jones' blog.
