So I'm doing this one day early, because I don't like last-minute pull requests during the merge window anyway, and tomorrow is mother's day, so I may end up being roped into various happenings.
Besides, this has actually been a pretty large merge window, so despite there technically being time for one more day of pulls, I actually do have enough changes already. So there.
Despite it being fairly large, it has (so far) been pretty smooth. I don't think I personally saw any breakage at all, which is always nice. Usually I end up having something break, or trigger some silly build failure that really should have been noticed before it even got to me, but so far things are looking good.
Famous last words.
The diffstat for this release looks a bit odd, because it's absolutely dominated by the new AMD Vega10 header files that have all the register definitions in them. In fact, that's almost exactly half the lines of diff in just that. And if you ignore that part, the new Intel Atom IPU driver ends up being a noticeable part of the rest.
But if you ignore those two big additions, the statistics look pretty normal. Two thirds drivers, with the rest being arch updates, documentation updates and "misc" (filesystems, networking, header updates, core files).
One thing worth noting - I haven't uploaded diffs or tar-balls for this rc. Those should now be automagically generated by kernel.org for the rc's, but that also means that they won't be signed by my key. If you really care about signing, get the git repo and check the tag.
