Linux 2.6.37

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Tue Jan 04 2011 - 20:16:22 EST

It's early January, and bleary-eyed people everywhere are getting over
their hangovers and wondering where they should send their merge
requests to.

And now they can. Because 2.6.37 is out, and the merge window for the
next release is thus open. Of course, as usual, I'll probably let
2.6.37 cool for a few days to try to encourage people to look at the
release rather than go all crazy with newly merged features in the
next tree.

All in all, not a lot happened the last week. The diffstat is
dominated by some VFS locking documentation and a few updates to fix
up some ASoC codex register cache changes. The rest is really pretty
small and boring. Full shortlog (from -rc8, naturally - the shortlog
for the whole 2.6.37 release is much too big) appended.

We did have another revert to fix hopefullythe last "blank screen"
regression on intel graphics.

As to the big picture, on the whole I think 2.6.37 has been fairly
calm. That will likely change with the merge window, as I'm looking
forward to getting the new RCU-based pathname lookup and similar
exciting features. So enjoy the calm sanity while it lasts.
