Linus Torvalds Announces Linux Kernel 4.1 Release Candidate 3 for Mother’s Day

According to Linus Torvalds, Linux kernel 4.1 RC3 is a Mother’s Day release that brings in mostly updated drivers, especially for InfiniBand, various improvements to the ARM architecture, updated file systems and documentation, as well as perf tooling. Many of the small issues introduced in Linux kernel 4.1 RC3 are regressions from this merge window, but there are some of them quite old, even from 2011.
