Oops! Linux 3.10.9 Released Promptly After 3.10.8

Chuckle. I guess there are days like this…
“I’m announcing the release of the 3.10.9 kernel.

If you don’t use networking, you can stick with 3.10.8, otherwise I’d recommend updating to this version.”

see Linux-Kernel Archive: Linux 3.10.9.

Indeed, the changelog shows a reversion:
“commit 8e7430857af5b242c950d3d2bb00289374f1436a
Author: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Aug 20 15:32:57 2013 -0700

Revert “genetlink: fix family dump race”

This reverts commit aab4f8d490ef8c184d854d5f630438c10406765c, commit
58ad436fcf49810aa006016107f494c9ac9013db upstream, as it causes
problems.”

3.10.8 was released the same day at 11:59:09 EST.

I am not sure from whence this comes as there is no discussion on lkml… but I do use networking and like Greg K-H’s kernels. You can give Linux-3.10.9 a try from kernel.org.
