It's Sunday, and two weeks have passed, and everything is normal. You all know the drill by now - the merge window is closed, and things are supposed to calm down.
The merge window felt fairly normal to me. And looking at the stats, nothing really odd stands out either. It's a regular sized release (which obviously means "big" - , but it's not bigger than usual) and the bulk of it (just over 60%) is drivers. All kinds of drivers, the one that stands out for being different is the habanalabs AI accelerator chip driver, but I suspect we'll be starting to see more of that kind of stuff. But there are all the usual suspects too - gpu, networking, block devices etc etc.
A somewhat recent development is how the tools/testing/ updates have been quite noticeable lately. That's not new to the 5.1 merge window, it's been going on for a while, but it's maybe just worth a mention that we have more new selftest changes than we have architecture updates, for example. The documentation subdirectory is also quite noticeable.
But on the whole, there's really stuff all over, including core VFS updates (in addition to all the usual low-level filesystem updates too, of course).
And as always, the shortlog is much too big to post with 11k+ commits (12k+ if counting merges). So below is my usual "mergelog" listing submaintainers and a summary of the git pulls I've done from them..
