Linus Torvalds: Linux 6.1-rc8


A szokásostól eltérően Linus nem adta ki a végleges 6.1-es Linux kernelt a hetedik prepatch után, hanem egy újabb prepatchet adott ki tesztelésre:

So we've finally started calming down, and rc8 is noticeably smaller
than previous release candidates.

So everything looks good, and while the calming down may have happened
later than I wished for, it did happen. Let's hope this upcoming week
is as quiet (or quieter).

The changes here are few enough that scanning through the shortlog
below should give you an idea of what's been going on, but it's
basically small changes spread all over. Nothing particularly stands
out to me.

I'm also happy to see that I already have a few pull requests
scheduled for when the 6.2 merge window opens up, so some people are
being proactive and want to have everything already lined up for a
calm holiday season. Hint, hint.
