    I don't think he cares that much about driver code, especially since this is adding new hardware support. As long as it comes in during the merge window, and not for rc6.
    My first thought was about how Linux said 3.10 was the kernel with the most changes in any single release ever, and then how this ONE git pull alone will touch 52k lines. 3.10 may become the kernel with the SECOND most changes ever.

      Just a note, 52k lines of code change would only get you into 3rd place in the 3.9 kernel in terms of a companies contribution. Intel had over 75k. Amazing pace of developement...

        AMD added 52k new lines of code, not changed 52k lines. It's more.

        However you are right, intel changed a LOT on 3.9, especially when you look at 3rd place, Wind River, is an Intel subsidiary.

          53,269 total lines in the original patchset, which would clearly be #3 in that 3.9 list.
