Linux v2.6.9...

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Mon Oct 18 2004 - 17:47:56 EST

despite some naming confusion (expanation: I'm a retard), I did end up
doing the 2.6.9 release today. And it wasn't the same as the "-final" test
release (see explanation above).

Excuses aside, not a lot of changes since -rc4 (which was the last
announced test-kernel), mainly some UML updates that don't affect anybody
else. And a number of one-liners or compiler fixes. Full list appended.
