list of commits this merge introduces?

It seems that _nobody_ is running a simple 32 bit i915 (acer) laptop.
rc6 is still unusable. Black screen directly after kernel-loading. no
change since rc1.

Seems like I won't be able to use 3.16. I'm happy to test patches and am
happy for any advice what to do, when time permits.


Martin, I am running happily a 32-bit kernel 3.16-rc*all on i915 (Asus EeePC)
However: from your postings I still have no idea what Intel video chipset is in your Acer.
Try to add "nomodeset=y" to your kernel's cmdline to verify that it can boot. You have many kobject messages which are hiding what is happening... And please submit at least full dmesg output and "lspci -nn" ;-)
