[Note:
  10 new reports in the last 10 days, but fortunately we're fixing them faster
  than they're being reported.]

This message contains a list of some regressions introduced between 2.6.30 and
2.6.31, for which there are no fixes in the mainline I know of.  If any of them
have been fixed already, please let me know.

If you know of any other unresolved regressions introduced between 2.6.30
and 2.6.31, please let me know either and I'll add them to the list.
Also, please let me know if any of the entries below are invalid.

Each entry from the list will be sent additionally in an automatic reply to
this message with CCs to the people involved in reporting and handling the
issue.

For details, please visit the bug entries and follow the links given in
references.

As you can see, there is a Bugzilla entry for each of the listed regressions.
There also is a Bugzilla entry used for tracking the regressions introduced
between 2.6.30 and 2.6.31, unresolved as well as resolved, at:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13615

Please let me know if there are any Bugzilla entries that should be added to
the list in there.

Thanks,
Rafael
