Subject Linux 5.19-rc4


So we've had a couple of fairly small rc releases, and here we finally
start to see an uptick in commits in rc4. Not what I really want to
see in the middle of the release cycle, but not entirely surprising
considering how quiet it's been so far.

And while 5.19-rc4 is a bit larger than previous rc's, and is a bit
larger than we usually see at this point, it's by no means anywhere
near record size. So more of a "a bit bigger than usual" than a "Oh my
God, this thing is huge".

The changes are also spread out fairly widely, and nothing really
stands out. I think the individually biggest patches are the reverts
to the printk threading changes that people wanted to really think
about some more, since the changes had caused some issues. The rest of
the diffstat is _fairly_ flat, with perhaps the vc4 drm patches
standing out a bit.

So at least right now this all feels like "making up for a small rc3"
rather than anything really worrisome, and probably just a result of
timing some of the patches shifted into rc4. But let's see how this
develops over the next couple of weeks.

The full shortlog with all the details is below, and I don't think
there's any larger pattern here. We've got all the usual architecture
fixes, driver fixes all over the place, and filesystems, core
networking, and tooling (perf and selftests). A lot of the changes
here are one- and few-liners.

Please do go test. Thanks,
