To absolutely nobody's surprise, last week was very quiet indeed. It's hardly even worth making an rc release, but there are _some_ fixes in here, so here's the usual weekly Sunday afternoon rc.
It's drivers (gpio, i915, scsi, libata), some cifs fixes, and io_uring fixes. And some kunit/selftest updates. And one or two other random small things.
Go test it, you still have some time before the New Year's Eve celebrations commence. Let's all hope for a happy new year, but I suspect the next rc is going to be on the small side too as most people are probably still in holiday mode..
