It's another Sunday afternoon. which must mean another rc release.

This one looks fairly normal, although if you look at the diffs, they
are dominated by the removal of a staging driver (r8188eu) that has
been superceded by a proper driver. That removal itself is 90% of the

But if you filter that out, it all looks normal. Still more than two
thirds in drivers, but hey, that's pretty normal. It's mostly gpu and
networking as usual, but there's various other driver fixes in there

Outside of that regular driver noise (and the unusual driver removal
noise) it's a little bit of everything: core networking, arch fixes,
documentation, filesystems (btrfs, xfs, and ext4, but also some core
vfs fixes). And io_uring and some tooling.

The full shortlog is appended, for the adventurous souls that want to
get that kind of details. The release feels fairly normal so far, but
it's early days. Please keep testing and reporting any issues,
