I think I said -rc6 might be the last -rc. I lied.
Things have been pretty quiet, but there's enough new stuff here
that I wanted to do another -rc, and we still have some issues with
the RCU changes causing problems when RCU events happen before the
scheduler has been fully initialized etc. So -rc7 is out there,
although it might not have mirrored out to the public sites quite
I also ended up re-generating the -rc6 files (fat-fingered the
release script), so the -rc6 patches and tar-balls look all brand
spanking new too! Two releases for the price of one!
There's not a whole lot to say about it - the appended shortlog
gives a reasonable overview. Random drivers (we're back to the
usual "two thirds drivers" statistics), some media and cifs
updates, and some vmscan corner case improvements.
