Linux 2.6.31-rc9

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sat Sep 05 2009 - 19:59:39 EST

I know I said I'd just release the final 2.6.31 when I was done diving,
but there were more pull requests while I was away than I'm comfortable
with at this stage. So I'm doing an -rc9 to let it simmer for a couple of
days and get some last-minute testing before doing the final release.

In particular, inotify was still broken in -rc8, and while several people
have verified that the -git trees fixed it, doing an -rc9 to get wider
checking is a good idea. We've also hopefully _finally_ fixed that last
annoying pty buffering bug, with Mikael Pettersson confirming that the
problems he saw are fixed.

There are also some (too big at this stage, oh well) updates to DM and a
couple of media drivers, and some Intel KMS fixes.

And then a random smattering of one-liners.

Go wild, and please give this a final round of testing.
