2011-12-12Documentation: Update stable addressJoe Perches1-4/+4
The Japanese/Korean/Chinese versions still need updating. Also, the stable kernel 2.6.x.y descriptions are out of date and should be updated as well. Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Cc: stable <stable@vger.kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2011-09-27doc: fix broken referencesPaul Bolle1-1/+1
There are numerous broken references to Documentation files (in other Documentation files, in comments, etc.). These broken references are caused by typo's in the references, and by renames or removals of the Documentation files. Some broken references are simply odd. Fix these broken references, sometimes by dropping the irrelevant text they were part of. Signed-off-by: Paul Bolle <pebolle@tiscali.nl> Signed-off-by: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>
2011-06-23sched: Generalize sleep inside spinlock detectionFrederic Weisbecker1-1/+1
The sleeping inside spinlock detection is actually used for more general sleeping inside atomic sections debugging: preemption disabled, rcu read side critical sections, interrupts, interrupt disabled, etc... Change the name of the config and its help section to reflect its more general role. Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Acked-by: Paul E.

2011-03-25docs: update the development process documentJonathan Corbet7-128/+167
Here's a set of changes updating Documentation/development-process. I have update kernel releases and relevant statistics, added information for a couple of tools, zapped some trailing white space, and generally tried to make it more closely match the current state of affairs.

2010-11-18Documentation/development-process: use -next trees instead of stagingAndres Salomon1-4/+4
This is confusing, as we have "staging" trees for drivers/staging. Call them -next trees.

2010-08-04Documentation: update broken web addresses.Justin P. Mattock1-1/+1
Below you will find an updated version from the original series bunching all patches into one big patch updating broken web addresses that are located in Documentation/* Some of the addresses date as far far back as 1995 etc... so searching became a bit difficult, the best way to deal with these is to use web.archive.org to locate these addresses that are outdated. Now there are also some addresses pointing to .spec files some are located, but some(after searching on the companies site)where still no where to be found. In this case I just changed the address to the company site this way the users can contact the company and they can locate them for the users. Signed-off-by: Justin P.

2009-06-04docs: Encourage better changelogs in the development process documentJonathan Corbet1-3/+28
Add a couple of paragraphs to the "patch formatting" section on how patches should be described. This text is shamelessly cribbed from suggestions posted by Rusty Russell. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
