Linux 2.5.51

From: Linus Torvalds (
Date: Mon Dec 09 2002 - 22:17:19 EST

Ok, big patch, but this is mostly all over the place with a lot of fairly
random small fixes (a lot of compile fixes for the build breakage from the
header file cleanups, for example).

The AGP reorg, fbdev merge, and the s390 updates also help make the patch
quite large.

Architecture merges, more merges with Andrew, and Al started cleaning up
some of his favourite code - devfs. See details in the changelog.


PS. I'm going to be traveling for three days, so..

Summary of changes from v2.5.50 to v2.5.51

  o usbfs: more list cleanups

  o [BRIDGE]: new_nbp runs under rwlock so needs to use GFP_ATOMIC
  o [BRIDGE]: Fix __fake_rtable metrics and some comments

  o RATOC USB-60 patch

  o [BRIDGE]: ebtables vlan match fixes and cleanups

  o [netdrvr tulip] new pci id

  o cyclades.c compile fix

  o vfat umas doc update

  o Grabbed the PPC drivers and in the process of porting to the latest
    api. Can now use driver specific read and write functions
  o fbgen is gone and now we have cfbcursor.c
  o Major fixes for the software accel functions. We have the penguin
  o Start of hardware rotation. PDA devices have often rotated screens
    with respect to the keyboard.'
  o Cleaned up the cursor api. Now it uses fb_imaeg which makes sense
    since a cursor is a image.More code cleanup for fbcon.c. Removal of
    excess elements passed into functions
  o Moving over to console_font_op to get ride of struct display
  o Massive cleanup of struct display. It will be going away

    clone the data each VC. This is much sanier
  o Nuked font related info in struct display. Almost gone now
  o The software cursor works for any pixel arrangement
