Linux 3.5 rc4

Jun 25, 2012, 11:00 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Linus Torvalds)


Lots of tiny fixes here. I think the biggest (in lines) change is the
fixup of the kmsg_dump() functionality that got broken due to the new
record-oriented kernel message stuff. And even that really isn't all
that big. The other one that stands out in pure number of lines is the
XFS 'struct log' rename patch (which also did a couple of trivial
whitespace changes).

So while we still have 200+ commits in this -rc, they really are all
pretty tiny and insignificant. Sure, if the particular issue they
fixed hit you (or you are the developer of those life-changing lines
;), you may disagree with the "insignificant" part, but to me, this is
just how I like the -rc's at this point.
