Kernel 2.6 changes

Joseph Pranevich has posted a pretty darned impressive document about the changes in Linux kernel 2.6 which just hit the street today.

From his “Stuff at the bottom” section:

This document was assembled primarily from long hours looking at BitKeeper changelogs, looking at and playing with the source, reading mailing list posts, and lots and lots of Google and Lycos searches for documentation about this and that.

Kudos.

Also a big thank you to everybody working on the kernel. Rocking stuff.
