2.6 update

Blockers down to 12, most have fixes in the works. Slipping into June, but currently doesn't look like it will slip too much.

Cray testing not going so well. Not at point where they can do large scale testing. Problems not yet reported. Some striped directory testing performed, but no results to share yet. Hitting small number of bugs repeatedly.

Other donation status from Xyratex - Lawyers are still working on the details.

Discussion about support for newer kernels and timing involved. RHEL7 and equivalent not in scope for Lustre 2.6. Support for RHEL7 Lustre client more-or-less works, and server is probably close, but there is no official support in Lustre 2.6.

Lustre 2.7 is likely reasonable to support RHEL7. Will require finding scale test resources on which to install RHEL7.
