    Quoting Linus:

    ?git is not an SCM. it's a filesystem designed to _host_ an SCM?

    ?In many ways you can just see git as a filesystem — it's content-addressable, and it has a notion of versioning, but I really really designed it coming at the problem from the viewpoint of a filesystem person (hey, kernels is what I do), and I actually have absolutely zero interest in creating a traditional SCM system.?

    Stupid 1-minute-to-edit.

    I think that large files with slightly changed segments between versions could share portions in the .git objects storage.

    Woohoo, It is working for me. No more Machine Exception Code. It starts automatically in DRI2 mode too. Great.

    Has anyone tried this kernel version already with Xen as dom0 or domU?

    That would be this one:
