So rc3 is fairly big, but that's not hugely usual: it's when a lot of
the fixes tick up as it takes a while before people find and start
reporting issues.

And nothing here looks hugely worrisome. The diffstat looks a bit
unusual in that there are relatively big changes to the scripts and
selftest directories, but that's mainly due to the git-ignore script
removal and some kvm selftest cleanups respectively. Nothing scary.

If you ignore those parts, it's a fairly standard "two thirds drivers,
one third rest" thing. The drivers are all over, but networking, gpu
and sound are the usual big ones, with the fbdev code showing up
mainly just because of a coding style fixup to the logo conversion
scripting (mainly to use proper tab indentation). The qcom
interconnect driver also shows up for major cleanup and fixes.

Outside of those areas, it's a random collection of fixes: the usual
arch updates (much - but not all - of it being kvm), some filesystem
fixes (mainly cifs), core networking, tracing, and some core mm fixes.

Anyway, it's early days still, but nothing here looks particularly odd.

Please test and report any issues you find,
