Linux 4.19 Had A Very Exciting First Week Of New Features

Some of the main pull requests with new features to come in during this first week of the Linux 4.19 merge window included:

An in-kernel GPS subsystem seems like it’s a decade or so past due.

The read-only EROFS file-system and Gasket Driver Framework are new to the staging area.

USB Type-C Display Mode alternate driver is added as well as the Type-C port manager being promoted out of staging.
