This is a *tiny* rc7, just how I like it. Maybe it's because everybody is too busy prepping for the holidays, and maybe it's because we simply are doing well. Regardless, it's been a quiet week, and I hope the trend continues.
The patch looks pretty small too, although it's skewed by a couple of bigger fixes (re-apply i915 workarounds after reset, and dm zoned bio completion fix). Other than that it's mainly all pretty small, and spread out (usual bulk of drivers, but some arch updates, filesystem fixes, core fixes, test updates..)
The plan remains the same: if everything continues normally, I'll release 4.20 just before christmas, and then just have a more leisurely merge window than normal. I already have a few early pull requests, and I continue to encourage people to take that approach, instead of sending things in during the holiday season.
