Linus Torvalds has tagged and released the Linux 4.3-rc2 kernel.

According to Torvalds, 4.3-rc2 is "looking fairly normal" and "there's some noise all over the tree due to the IRQ flow-handler cleanup.... But apart from that one-time thing, things are looking fairly calm and small."

More commentary via the mailing list announcement.
