Linux 2.6.25-rc1 (new features)

I am extremely glad to see 2.6.25-rc1, specially due to some of the new features that I've added.

A list of features is mentioned in the LWN article about the merge window for 2.6.25-rc1. This includes the memory controller (now called memory resource controller). Check out as well. We also got fake NUMA nodes for PowerPC and many other small fixes.

Check out some of the cool graphs from that website
