Tiger still boots with my release tree (just has seven patches that
haven't been sent to Linus yet, including Russ' fix for my merge
goof that created item "3" above).  I haven't pulled in from Linus
in about three days, so I'm about 458 commits behind the bleeding
edge.  So a "git bisect" between Linus head and the point where I last
merged (commit 64bc0430) might yield the problem (for Ken's tiger
boot issue).


Here's what's in release/test that hasn't gone to Linus yet:
