The big one fixes an fcntl bug which makes the SMP kernel perform worse
than a UP kernel on an SMP system. It's a serious bug and I believe it
will be included in future kernels.
Another resolves the prio_tree bug which can hang a system under heavy load.
Others, that may not be that important to others:
- upgraded pwc camera driver
- upgraded wacom driver
- fix "make xconfig" on x86_64
- fix incorrect number of siblings reported in /proc/cpuinfo
I've applied these on kernels 2.6.9-11 up through 2.6.9-22.3
You may e-mail me directly if you're interested.
