Linux 3.14-rc2 Kernel Brings Fair Amount Of Fixes
Phoronix: Linux 3.14-rc2 Kernel Brings Fair Amount Of Fixes
When releasing -rc2 kernels, Linus Torvalds is sometimes unhappy with the amount of code changes that happened, but this Sunday evening he seems okay with Linux 3.14-rc2 as it's been a fairly normal week...
Release Candidate 2, hm? How much longer until we see Linux 3.14 released?

I get X's clock icon for a very long time, and I have to go back to a console screen and reboot into 3.13 from there.
Just curious if anyone has come accross this behaviour with 3.14. I'm running gentoo amd64, on an Ivy Bridge platform (Dell Optiplex 7010), and all my filesystems are btrfs.
