Subject: [ANNOUNCE] 3.4-rt8
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.rt.user
Date: Monday 4th June 2012 15:50:18 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Dear RT Folks,

I'm pleased to announce the 3.4-rt8 release.

Changes since 3.4-rt7:

  * Printk fix (Frank Rowand)

  * mm activate protection fix (Frank Rowand)

  * qla2xxx rt conversion (John Kacur)

  * Networking RT fix (Priyanka Jain)

  * Lockdep selftest fixes (Yong Zhang)

  * Mips remove smp_reserve_lock

  * genirq: Add default irq mask command line parameter

This is the last 3.4-rt release from my side. I'm handing 3.4 over to
Steven and move on to 3.5.

The delta patch to 3.4-rt7 is appended below and can be found
here as incremental patch:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.4/incr/patch-3.4-rt7-rt8.patch.xz

The RT patch against 3.4 can be found here:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.4/patch-3.4-rt8.patch.xz


The split quilt queue is available at:

  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.4/patches-3.4-rt8.tar.xz


Enjoy,

	tglx
