LINUX KERNEL --
RISC-V developers have been preparing their kernel port for the mainline Linux tree while it's looking like for Linux 4.15 that goal may finally be realized.

RISC-V developers have spent months getting their code into shape so it could be accepted to the mainline Linux kernel for this open-source, royalty-free CPU instruction set architecture. They have missed out on past merge windows, realize it's too late now for Linux 4.14, and are focusing on being ready come Linux 4.15.

Published today was their eighth revision to their kernel patches in addressing feedback from developers and are trying to align things for 4.15. Those interested in RISC-V can learn more from the aforelinked patch series.
