Lots of New Things In Next Kernel

If you saw the changes in the next 2.6.22 kernel from KernelNewbies, than you might know the idea of this post. The next Linux kernel will bring lots of new things and you will have to deal with it at configuration phase (it always happened in a new final kernel release, but i think it will be one of the most question been asked). Lots of new drivers and technology (SLUB and UBI) are being merged in this release. It also add one new architecture, called BlackFin. It's going to be a big release, along with other updates that has been merged until RC3 so far. I hope the final release will be as stable as before, considering this is a big updates, but i believe that the kernel developers are able to stabilize things up before the final version is released, thus we will enjoy a nice and stable kernel working on our system.
