I think there has been a fair amount of work on mac80211 and cfg80211
and related drivers, though.
Also, I believe Radeon KMS and DRM for r600/r700 is new, and there
are improvements to the Radeon KMS and DRM for r500 and under.
Oh, and VGA Arbitration and some new SCSI FC driver that Linus didn't
much like. Greg K-H has also been fixing up Microsoft's HV driver.
