Linux 4.3-rc6: The New Kernel Remains Calm
About this sixth weekly test release for the Linux 4.3 kernel, Linus Torvalds noted, "Things continue to be calm, and in fact have gotten progressively calmer. All of which makes me really happy, although my suspicious nature looks for things to blame...Whatever the reason, there is nothing odd or scary going on, and the appended shortlog is nice and short. Almost all of it is drivers, with infiniband and gpu patches being most noticeable. But even there, the biggest patch by far is just a copyright message clarification in infiniband, which by itself is almost a third of the whole patch. Because the rest is really pretty small."
