Another rc, another week closer to release. And this one is slightly
smaller than rc5 was, although smaller still would always be better.
But like rc5, none of the changes look particularly scary, and over a
quarter were cc'd for stable, so things look to be on track. I
currently expect to make an rc7 next week, with the final 3.19 in two
weeks, as per the usual schedule.
The statistics look very normal, with the patch being about 70% driver
changes (a Dell laptop platform driver revert being the biggest single
patch, but there's networking, media, gpu, gpio, sound..) and about
14% arch updates (x86 and arm are the biggest ones, but there are
small updates to others too) and the rest is mostly scattered all over
(documentation updates, some networking, some filesystem changes -
mainly btrfs, etc etc).
The shortlog gives kind of a detailed summary for people who want to
get a flavor of what was going on. Nothing really particularly stands
