So here we are, one week late, and 5.19 is tagged and pushed out.
The full shortlog (just from rc8, obviously not all of 5.19) is below,
but I can happily report that there is nothing really interesting in
there. A lot of random small stuff.
In the diffstat, the loongarch updates stand out, as does another
batch of the networking sysctl READ_ONCE() annotations to make some of
the data race checker code happy.
Other than that it's really just a mixed bag of various odds and ends.
On a personal note, the most interesting part here is that I did the
release (and am writing this) on an arm64 laptop. It's something I've
been waiting for for a _loong_ time, and it's finally reality, thanks
to the Asahi team. We've had arm64 hardware around running Linux for a
long time, but none of it has really been usable as a development
platform until now.
It's the third time I'm using Apple hardware for Linux development - I
did it many years ago for powerpc development on a ppc970 machine.
And then a decade+ ago when the Macbook Air was the only real
thin-and-lite around. And now as an arm64 platform.
Not that I've used it for any real work, I literally have only been
doing test builds and boots and now the actual release tagging. But
I'm trying to make sure that the next time I travel, I can travel with
this as a laptop and finally dogfooding the arm64 side too.
Anyway, regardless of all that, this obviously means that the merge
window (*) will open tomorrow. But please give this a good test run
before you get all excited about a new development kernel.
