As almost everyone knows, it's been an "interesting" week from a social point-of-view. But from the technical side, -rc5 looks totally normal.
The diffstat is a bit higher than previous -rc5's, but the number of trees pulled is lower, so overall, pretty much all is on track. I'm not seeing any major "these bugs are not being fixed!" type of reports, so I can hope that the initial churn that -rc1 threw at everyone is under control.
The majority size-wise of changes here are with more tests being added and fixed up, but there is also the usual networking, x86, sound, drm, ppc, and other fixes. Full details are in the shortlog below.
As usual, please go and test this thing, and let me know if anything technical isn't getting addressed that needs to be.
