So this is later on a Sunday than my usual schedule, because I just
couldn't make up my mind whether I should do another rc8 or not, and
kept just waffling about it. In the end, I obviously decided not to,
but it could have gone either way.
We did have one nasty regression that got fixed yesterday, and the
networking pull early in the week was larger than I would have wished
for. But the block layer should be all good now, and David went
through all his networking commits an extra time just to make me feel
comfy about it, so
And on the whole, everything here is pretty small. The diffstat looks
a bit larger for an xfs fix, because that fix has three cleanup
refactoring patches that precedes it. And there's a access type
pattern fix in the sound layer that generated lots of noise, but is
all very simple in the end.
In addition to the above, there's random small fixes all over -
shortlog appended for people who want to skim the details as usual.
Go test, and obviously with 4.5 released, I'll start the merge window for 4.6.
