Linux 3.7 rc7

(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)
A week ago, I had even considered skipping -rc7 entirely as things had
been so calm, but decided that there was little reason to hurry the
release.

And oh, how sadly right I was. -rc7 is out now, and is not at all
smaller than the previous rc's, and in fact slightly scarier. For some
reason the block layer came up on the radar, and there are md, scsi
and generic block layer changes in there. So we definitely want
another week of testing, and hopefully things really are solid.

There's also a few filesystem fixes (reiserfs, xfs and ext3) and
various other driver updates (sound, networking and drm).

Shortlog appended. Go out and test,

Linus
