I imported the emu10kx driver into -current. It was already available from ports, and may replace the emu10k1 driver in the future. Currently both are available as a module, just in case there are some problems.
In the last days I spend my free time with mentoring Boris and the SoC students. Boris is maybe ready to fly solo now (and he already got implicit aproval for several things from me), but I will keep an eye on him from time to time for some more weeks.
The linuxolator SoC project progresses faster now. We may have support for TLS, TID and futexes in the comming week (this should allow us to run FC4/FC5 with a linux kernel version of 2.6.x, time will tell).
In the sound SoC project, Ryan created an user repository. He is more comfortable with committing “micro-changes” to the user branch first to not spam the perforce mailinglist. I don’t think this matters, but when he feels more comfortable this way, I don’t object. This makes it a little bit harder for me to follow, but I will nag him more often for a status report then.
