Subject Linux 6.4-rc5


Here we are, one week later, and rc5 has been tagged and pushed out.

Nothing particularly strange here, most notable is probably just the
quick revert of the module loading trial that caused problems for
people in rc4 depending on just random timing luck (or rather, lack
there-of). So if you tried rc4, and some devices randomly didn't work
for you, that was likely the issue.

But there's obviously all the other random fixes in there, and it all
looks fairly familiar, with half of the patch being driver fixes (gpu
and networking being the most notable as usual, but there's rdma,
scsi, and various other things in there too). The rest is just spread
out, with nothing very odd standing out.

The shortlog is appended as usual, and things look normal both in the
diff and in just the regular number of commits. We've certainly seen
smaller, but we've also seen bigger, so this seems fairly much on
target for rc5.

So despite the module loading hiccup (blush, that's all on me), I
think we're in good shape and nothing makes me think this release
wouldn't be one of the nice, boring, regular ones. Yes, there are a
couple of regressions being tracked, but hopefully we'll get them all.

Famous last words.

So please do test, and try to prove me wrong,
