Linux 4.0-rc6 Kernel Released
We're up to the sixth release candidate for the Linux 4.0 kernel.
Torvalds' 4.0-rc6 announcement was quite simple with everything panning out nicely for this stage of development:
Things are calming down nicelly, and there are fixes all over. The NUMA balancing performance regression is fixed, and things are looking up again in general. There were a number of i915 issues and a KVM double-fault thing that meant that for a while there I was pretty sure that this would be a release that will go to rc8, but that may be unnecessary.For those not already familiar with the exciting bits of Linux 4.0, see today's article about the big features about the Linux 4.0 kernel.
Apart from the aforementioned issues, the bulk of this is mostly small misc driver fixes and architecture updates. The shortlog gives more of a flavor of what's been going on.
But please do give this a good testing, and holler if there's some regression we've missed.
