Linux 3.9-rc4 Kernel Is Not Calm

Linus Torvalds announced the release of the RC4 for the Linux 3.9 kernel on Saturday evening, but its development still has not slowed down.

Torvalds wrote in his brief 3.9-rc4 release announcement:
Another week, another -rc. And things haven't calmed down, meaning that the nice small and calm -rc2 was definitely the outlier so far. But I'm optimistic, dammit, and I'm going to keep hoping that things will change, and the upcoming week will be boring and devoid of any real work what-so-ever.

It had better be, because it's spring break and the kids are around.

Anyway.

While it hasn't been as calm as I'd like things to be, it's not like things have been hugely exciting either. Most of this really is pretty trivial. It's all over, with the bulk in drivers (drm, md, net, mtd, usb, sound), but also some arch updates (powerpc, arm, sparc, x86) and filesystem work (cifs, ext4).
At least there's many interesting features to Linux 3.9.
