    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.32-rc3 Kernel Released, No -rc2

    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...

    Now if we can have a few more of these "bugs" then we can move on through the RC stage much quicker and have 2.6.32 out in no time! I love the ingenuity of kernel developers. They always find a better way of doing things.

      The next rc if there's one should be called rc5, haha

      Can't wait to see 2.6.32 out the door soon

        Interesting note by Linus:
        one thing that might be worth mention (despite being fairly small) is that there's been some IO latency tweaking in the block layer (CFS scheduler). I'm hoping that ends up being one of those noticeable things, where people might actually notice better responsiveness. Give it a try.
        ..possibly prompted by BFS?
