Linux 4.14-rc4

Filed under

Another week, another -rc.

This release does seem to continue to be more active in the rc's than
usual, but it actually feels like it's calming down. So rc4 is larger
than an rc4 release usually is (about 400 non-merge commits, when
usually at this stage we should be at ~300), but at the same time it
feels fairly normal. There was the watchdog merge that I already
mentioned in the rc3 release, but other than that it looks much more
like a normal rc than rc3 did, for example.

In particular, ignoring that core watchdog thing, it's the usual
"mostly drivers and arch updates". This time most of the arch updates
(by far) are arm, and the driver5s are dominated by networking, but
there's other stuff in there too (USB, MMC, HID..). And then the usual
random stuff elsewhere.
