Any chance of a rollup patch again, like you did for .8?

Oops, forgot to do that, thanks for reminding me. It can be found at: patch-

And yes, it's not in the "main" v2.6 subdirectories, I'm not going to put it there anymore as it confuses too many scripts/people.

So what if they're confused? If they're official releases, blessed with holy penguin pee, then shouldn't they be in the standard release area?

Well, except for the fact that the pre-stable RC patches are neither "official" nor "releases". They're just a combo rollup patch of all of the proposed stable patches before they've been batch reviewed on the LKML. (IOW: just for ease of testing)
