Well, it's that time again.  Here's the 2.2.1 release.

There are many more changes in here than I would have liked, and we still 
weren't able to close all the blockers (though we did squash quite a few 
tough ones), but we had to release someday.  According to bugzilla, we closed 
at least a few dozen bugs between 2.2.0 and 2.2.1, but I suspect my 
bugzilla-fu isn't good enough to get the real list.

Thanks a ton to our community testing team, who was diligent about testing the 
pre-release and herding bugs to the slaughterhouse, and of course the 
development team and all who contributed fixes.

Zhenyu will be handling the 2.3 release, which should include a few new 
features relative to 2.2 (we're hoping to reduce some of the mode setting 
flicker that occurs at startup, among other things), and volunteers are 
welcome to step forward if they'd like to see a 2.2.2 release with a few more 
bug fixes.

And on the policy front, we've decided it's worth spending some time fixing 
kernel framebuffer related bugs, so if you see problems with this driver 
running on top of vesafb (intelfb should only be used if you *really* know 
what you're doing), please report them.  We'll probably need register dumps 
and lots of testing to fix any issues, but we do want to hear about them.
