It's been pretty quiet, actually, which should make me happy. But I have a suspicious nature, and I'm going to wait to see if the other shoe drops, and people are just lulling me into a false sense of security. Because I know kernel developers, and they are sneaky. I suspect Davem (to pick somebody not at random) is giggling to himself, waiting for this release message, planning to send me some big-ass pull request tomorrow. Because that's the kind of people you guys are. Anyway, what little there was looks normal: roughly two thirds drivers (gpu, block, media, misc), with almost half the remaining patches being architecture updates (x86, s390 and arm64). With the rest being filesystems (vfs, nfs, ocfs, btrfs and some kernfs fixes), some mm noise, and tooling (perf). Shortlog appended, which doesn't always happen for rc2.
