You all know the drill by now. We're in the late rc phase, and this
may be the last rc if nothing surprising happens.

Things have been pretty calm this past week (the beginning of the week
seemed particularly calm, and then as usual Friday happened..). We
have a number of reverts for things that didn't work out and aren't
worth trying to fix at this point, that's also normal (and people will
look at it for the next version instead).

So not too big, and things look very normal with two thirds of the
changes being to drivers, and the rest being a mixture of arch updates
(arm, x86, ia64, parisc), networking and filesystems (btrfs, cifs,
orangefs). With a smattering of other stuff (tooling, header files,
core kernel).

Please test,

Linus
