Replace Oracle with the NoSQL Engagement Database: Why and how leading companies are making the switch REGISTER >

fter last weeks somewhat unusual patch statistics (only 1/6th
drivers), we're not back to the normal programming with rc3, and we
have the usual situation with roughly ~60% of the patch being driver
updates. It's spread out, but most of it tends to be networking, GPU,
USB and a new EDAC driver. But all of it is fairly small.

Outside of the driver department, we've got core networking, some
filesystem updates (mainly xfs, although in the diffstat afs shows up
too, but that's really from the networking changes) and a smattering
of updates all over: documentation, scheduler, some miinor arch
updates etc.

And some perf tooling fixes.

It all looks pretty sane, I'm not seeing anything hugely scary here.
Go test it out,

Linus
