Nothing terribly exciting here.

The most noteworthy thing may be that only about a quarter of the changes are in drivers, filesystem changes actually account for more(40%): btrfs, cifs, ext4, jbd2, nfs are all present and accounted for.

On the driver side, there's some gpu updates, infiniband, mmc, sound and some SCSI target fixes.

And the normal random smattering of changes all around. Like some long-standing compile failure (admittedly you need to enable some esoteric resource counting options and disable NUMA to trigger it, but still). I think there's a few more lurking in staging, with fixes yet to be merged.

The appended shortlog is fairly readable.
