Linus Issues A Thanksgiving Day Linux Kernel
The Linux 3.2-rc3 kernel consists of "One quarter arch updates, two quarters drivers, and one quarter random changes. Shake vigorously and serve cold.."
Linus also says:
And maybe the rest of the world can try to make up for the lack of any expected US participation? Hmm?
Anyway, whether you will be stuffing yourself with turkey tomorrow or not, there's a new -rc out. I'd love to say that things have been calming down, and that the number of commits just keep shrinking, but I'd be lying. -rc3 is actually bigger than -rc2, mainly due to a network update (none in -rc2) and with Greg doing his normal usb/driver-core/tty/staging thing.
We also had a drm update.
That said, most of the commits are pretty small and reasonable. So there's certainly more churn than I'd like, but it's not like it's a lot of big changes, there's just a fair number of small things going on. The shortlog (appended) gives a fair flavor of the details.
Find the change-log on LKML.org (well, until Anzwix launches).
I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving today with the SUSE (and former RadeonHD) developers in Nürnberg over some delicious Franconian meals and beer. After that it's onto to Vienna. For any Phoronix readers or Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org users wishing to meet-up in Bavaria or Austria, let me know.
