From: Thomas Gleixner

Dear RT Folks,

I'm pleased to announce the 3.6.3-rt6 release. rt6 is just an update
to 3.6.3. The not announced 3.6.2-rt5 is an intermediate release with
a single change.

Changes since 3.6.2-rt4:

* Make the early printk changes work (hopefully) everywhere

The new patch queue also contains a non code change (according to
Pauls) which adds a missing subject line to a powerpc patch.

The delta patch against 3.6.2-rt4 is appended below and can be found


The RT patch against 3.6.3 can be found here:
