    "Shuffling Zombie Juror"? I was hoping 3.14 would have been "Pi". Or "Half-Tau". But maybe that's for 3.14.15...

    it?

    Literally the name only appears in I think two places.

    1) The git logs
    2) The make file / KConfig file has a place to set the major minor and patch version as well as the listed name

    And I truly can't think of any where else in the entire freaking Kernel the name gets mentioned.

    Rc3 probably won't work with nVidia cards below nv50 with nouveau. So be careful, bug is here.

    Is Linus ever going to invent a codename that can be stated in conversation without confusing everyone?

    No HDMI audio on Radeon 7660D (A10-5800K Trinity APU) with stable 3.14. Silly!
