Linux 5.2 rc5

"It's Sunday afternoon somewhere in the world".

In fact, it's _barely_ Sunday afternoon back home, where I'll be later
today. But not quite yet, and I continue my slightly flaky release
schedule due to my normal release time being spent on an airplane once
again.

In fact, that will happen the _next_ two weekends too due to yet more
travel. So the releases will not be quite the clockwork they usually
are.

But the good news is that we're getting to the later parts of the rc
series, and things do seem to be calming down. I was hoping rc5 would
end up smaller than rc4, and so it turned out. There's some pending
stuff still, but it all looks quite small and nothing seems to be
particularly scary-looking.

And this time around we don't even have any huge SPDX updates, so the
diffstat looks nice and small and clean too. Normal changes all over
(with drivers being the bulk of it as it should be: sound stands out,
but there's gpu, HID, USB, block.. ). Outside of driver fixes there's
the usual noise all over: arch updates, documentation, and small misc
fixes spread out.

As mentioned, nothing particularly stands out as being scary. Shortlog
appended for details for those of you who want to scan over it
quickly, it's not big.

Go forth and test,

Linus
