The latest pull request to talk about for the Linux 4.3 kernel are the input driver updates.

The input pull for Linux 4.3 brings lots of input driver updates, but no major core changes. Some of the Linux input driver work includes asynchronous probing for the elants_i2c and elan_i2c drivers, "Gen6" device module support for Cyapa, proximity support for Gen5/Gen6 in Cyapa, LED support for the cap11xx driver, and a variety of other fixes/improvements to the input drivers.

More details on the input changes for the Linux 4.3 window can be found here. On a related note, the HID pull was sent in earlier this week.
