I've spent much of the past year finding bugs in dozens of parts of the kernel
using my stress testing tool 'trinity'.  I'd like to take some time discussing..

- what this tool is/does, as there still seem to be some people unaware.
- possibly talk about other tools I'm working on if I get them finished in time.
- get feedback for ways to enhance these tools.

and perhaps as a separate follow-up session, I'd like to talk about the rate at which
we're introducing regressions.  Many of the bugs trinity finds aren't found during
testing on next, but show up within a day of code appearing in Linus' tree during -rc.
Where is the process failing ?

Finally, as another possible session, I'd like to present some anecdotal data
on the bugs we've been getting against the Fedora kernel. Over the last year I've
been collecting a lot of data on this, and while the results aren't particularly
surprising, they do highlight we still have problems in a number of areas.
