Linus Torvalds Chickened Out and Delayed the Release of Linux Kernel 4.2 for One Week

Linux kernel 4.2 RC8 is a small Release Candidate version that contains last-minute reverts for things that weren’t ready to be part of this release after all. Most of the changes are updated drivers, along with various networking improvements, a fix for the x86 architecture, as well as perf tooling improvements.
