Linus Torvalds Announces the Second Linux Kernel 4.5 Release Candidate Build

According to Mr. Torvalds, Linux kernel 4.5 RC2 is a pretty big one, at least when compared with last week’s first Release Candidate build, and it includes architecture and drivers updates, some fixes for the Btrfs file system, perf improvements, as well as the new virtio self-tests. Other than that, small improvements here and there, but you should check the appended shortlog for technical details.
