San Jose firefighters Tuesday night responded to reports of explosions from within a four-story building in San Jose that has also drawn responses from a bomb squad and a hazardous materials team.

The fire department responded to the building at 2211 North 1st St. at 7:31 p.m. after being contacted by the building's private alarm company that some windows were broken and several explosions may have occurred inside.

According to San Jose Fire Department Capt. Jose Guerrero there were no obvious signs of fire, but it appears there was a haze coming from inside of the building and several windows had been blown out.

Firefighters have ordered the evacuation of the building and members of the bomb squad and the hazardous materials team are going through the structure, according to Guerrero.

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
