This is the start of the stable review cycle for the release.
There are 23 patches in this series, all will be posted as a response to
this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please let
us know. If anyone is a maintainer of the proper subsystem, and wants
to add a Signed-off-by: line to the patch, please respond with it.

These patches are sent out with a number of different people on the Cc:

add your name to the list. If you want to be off the reviewer list,
also email us.

Responses should be made by Sunday, August 6, 05:00:00 UTC. Anything
received after that time might be too late.

I've also posted a roll-up patch with all changes in it if people want
to test it out. It can be found at:

Any chance that the fixes in the (latest) e1000 driver version
7.1.9-k4 will get backported?

I can't run on at least one of my servers due to bugs in the
driver that are fixed in the latest e1000 version.
I looked through the -stable patches but didn't find anything that
would fix my problem.
I get messages along the lines of "kernel: Virtual device XXX asks to
queue packet!" and the device then refuses to work.
The last kernel where I know for a fact that it worked OK is 2.6.11,
so that's what the server is currently running.

Getting the fix for that problem backported to -stable would really make my day.
