Greg Kroah-Hartman submitted his feature pull requests on Monday morning for the USB, staging, driver core, and TTY/serial areas of the Linux 3.10 kernel that's just entered development following yesterday's Linux 3.9 kernel release.

The staging pull, which Linus Torvalds already has fetched and merged into his mainline kernel tree, has a fair amount of changes as usual. Greg's other pulls for the Linux 3.10 cycle aren't as interesting this time around.

The staging driver patches for the Linux 3.10 kernel aren't incredible exciting, but contains "loads of comedi driver cleanups", continued work on the XGIFB driver, continued work on Zcache, a lot of work on the omap-thermal / ti-soc-thermal drivers, a synchronization framework has been added to the staging tree, and a lot of other changes.

With some of the staging drivers being removed and other code being cleaned-up, more code ended up getting removed this cycle versus added: 65,145 lines of new code while 76,321 lines of deletion.

A list of all the staging driver changes for the Linux 3.10 kernel merge window can be found with this mailing list post.
