Torvalds commented of 4.11-rc2, "As usual, the week after rc1 tends to be fairly quiet when people are still looking for bugs and taking a breather after the merge window. But we've got a healthy number of fixes in, and there's some cleanup/prep patches for the upcoming 5-level page table support that I took after the merge window just to make the next merge window easier. There's also a (small) late random driver update."
