LINUX KERNEL --
Linus Torvalds still hasn't pulled the KDBUS code into the Linux 4.1 kernel and it's beginning to look like he won't honor this pull request for the current Linux development cycle.

The KDBUS pull request was sent in at the very beginning of the merge window but with it nearly closing it hasn't been accepted and is still drawing lots of criticism.

The "kdbus for 4.1-rc1" Linux kernel mailing list thread is still a super-active thread. Linus Torvalds himself today has been active on the thread and expressing his concerns with some potential security issues in the current KDBUS code and using his colorful language.

Right now it seems rather mixed whether KDBUS will be ready to land by Sunday for the Linux 4.1-rc1 kernel, but if I had to bet after following this thread since its inception, it looks like KDBUS might be delayed until Linux 4.2 or later.
