Title: Kernel 2.6.37 for opensuse 11.4

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: jimbo bigcreed (dimble_thricefoon)

Description:
I realise we are using a time based release, and no longer chase
feature releases, but 2.6.37 will have some very interesting
technologies according to phoronix:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODYyMw
"we can start getting excited for the Linux 2.6.37 kernel
(http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=search&q=Linux+2.6.37) and its
exciting new features: DisplayLink driver enhancements
(http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODUyMg) , improved
desktop responsiveness
(http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODU0OQ) ,
Broadcom's open-source driver
(http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODU4Mg) , improved
Radeon Evergreen DRM
(http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODU4Mw) , and Intel
Linux DRM improvements
(http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODYyMQ) ."
If 2.6.36 is due mid-Oct, then we can expect 2.6.37 to arrive Mid-Late
January, surely this is not too late for 11.4 which is expected Late-
Feb to Early-March?
Kind regards

+ It will be a great pitty if the 2.6.37 kernel is not included.  This is
+ the kernel to get working on a new desktop OS!
