Things are looking fairly normal, so here's the regular weekly  rc.

It's a bit bigger than rc5, but not alarmingly so, and nothing looks
particularly worrisome. Knock wood. The only slightly unusual thing is
how the patches are spread out, with almost equal parts of arch
updates, drivers, filesystems, networking and "misc".

But the late rc's are small enough that you see more fluctuation in
those kinds of statistics than you see over the bigger release, so
"not the usual distribution" is more about the normal noise of
development all over.

Go and get it,

Linus
