[FYI] 2.6.23-rc8-git3 misc observations

Running FC6 (updated this am) the temp sensors GNOME applet works with the kernel.org kernel, not the FC6 kernel. This has been true for a while, and I've stopped chasing it, I don't really care right now, since the sensors command works fine and that's what my daemon checks.

Using 2.6.23-rc8 (no git) the NIC came up at 100Mbit instead of gigE once, not reproducible. Just in case this kicks off a bunch of "mee too" replies. lspci info follows text.

Boot times: I occasionally boot repeatedly for various tests, these are the fastest of three (or more) boots of a given kernel, ID is what uname gives.

2.6.21-sd046 55.29
2.6.21-cfs-v6 55.93
2.6.20-1.2944.fc6 64.71
2.6.23-rc8-git3 65.06 69.02
