So this is the biggest -rc1 in the last several years (perhaps ever) at least as far as counting commits go, even if not necessarily in actual lines (I didn't check the statistics on that).
Which was unexpected, because while linux-next was fairly big, it wasn't exceptionally so. I'm sure Stephen Rothwell will talk about the statistics of commits that weren't in -next, we'll see if that was the reason..
Anyway, despite the large number of commits, hopefully it's all boringly straigthforward. Sure.
Now, even normally, there's no way to list all the changes, much less so when it's an unusually large -rc1. But I can do my "merge shortlog" again, and it's worth mentioning (again) that the name attributed to the merge is *not* necessarily the author of any of the code, it's literally just the person who emailed me the pull request. So you can see this as an approximation of "first-level maintainership" or something, although even that is somewhat misleading since some of these things are really done by groups and then there's one person who end up sending me the end result.
But it's somewhat readable, and gives you a reasonable idea of what is going on. A better idea can be gotten by looking at git directly, especially since the merge commits often do contain a better description of what happened. Not that all submaintainers necessarily always send me that, but most of the merges actually do have human-readable background information.
It's possible that I missed something. This really was a busier merge window than usual. Holler if so,
