Linux 3.18 rc4

Hey, things are finally calming down. In fact, it looked *really* calm until yesterday, at which point some people clearly realized “hey, I should push my stuff to Linus so that it makes it into -rc4”, and then a third of all changes came in the last day, but despite that, rc4 finally looks like things are falling into place, and we’ll get to stabilize this release after all.

Here’s to hoping the trend holds…

Things look fairly normal. A bit over half is drivers, and almost a third is architecture patches (arm, powerpc, mips and s390). The rest is a few filesystem updates (mainly XFS) and misc random stuff.

The shortlog gives a feel for the details, and nothing looks particularly scary or odd.
