[Osdir-daily] Patch: Linux 2.6.13

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sun Aug 28 2005 - 19:19:03 EST

There it is.

The most painful part of 2.6.13 is likely to be the fact that we made x86
use the generic PCI bus setup code for assigning unassigned resources.
That uncovered rather a lot of nasty small details, but should also mean
that a lot of laptops in particular should be able to discover PCI devices
behind bridges that the BIOS hasn't set up.

We've hopefully fixed up all the problems that the longish -rc series
showed, and it shouldn't be that painful, but if you have device problems,
please make a report that at a minimum contains the unified diff of the
output of "lspci -vvx" running on 2.6.12 vs 2.6.13. That might give us
some clues.
