I just made available the first Linaro kernel merge result at the 
following location:


[ The native Git protocol for cloning is not operational at the moment
  so maybe announcing this now will increase pressure for having this 
  fixed more quickly. ]

The process we're experimenting at the moment for the production of this 
kernel is described on this page:


Right now, this is a merge of:

 - mainline 2.6.35-rc3

 - Maverick Ubuntu-2.6.35-3.4

 - RMK's ARM devel branch

 - Catalin Marinas' ARM patches from 

 - and the kernel security features for ARM I've been working on lately 
   (stack protector, address space layout randomization)

There is no extra support for specific hardware target beyond what's 
already included with the above.  I expect this will change the next 
time this tree is rebuilt (let me know if you have a tree that should be 
considered for inclusion) but this initial announcement should at least 
get the ball rolling.

Further improvements being considered:

 - Include a file with details about what trees and versions were 
   included in the merge.

 - Add references to each release with that info on a wiki page.

If you have any questions or comment please don't hesitate to ask me.
