Andrew Morton released the third -mc patchset [story] reminding, "this is the queue of things to go to Linus next week." Among the updates that Andrew is sending to Linus and that will most likely be found in the upcoming 2.6.6 kernel is Jens Axboe's CFQ I/O scheduler [story].

The CFQ, or Complete Fair Queuing disk I/O scheduler was first released back in February of 2003 [story], designed to maintain a minimal worst case latency on all IO reads and writes, ideal for multimedia desktop usage. The scheduler has been tested in numerous patchsets to date, including Andrew's -mm patchset [forum], Con Kolivas [interview]'s 2.6 -ck patchset [forum], and Marc-Christian Petersen [interview]'sWOLK patchset [story].

Read on to see all the changes queued up for the 2.6.6 kernel.
