This scares me.  We're shipping 2.6.31 because we can't justify the risk
of shipping rc code in a final release. With huge amounts of change
like this, we're essentially doing the same thing.

What justification is there for this ?
(If the answer involves the acronym 'RHEL' there are better ways
 than shoving it into Fedora at the last minute)
