Linus Torvalds: Linux 6.6-rc2


Tesztelhető a 6.6-os Linux kernel második prepatche. Linus megemlítette, hogy az -rc2 legemlítésreméltóbb dolga az, hogy pontosan 32 év telt el a 0.01-es verzió kiadása óta, ami egy kerek szám, ha számítógépes személy vagy:

Another week, another -rc.

I think the most notable thing about 6.6-rc2 is simply that it's
exactly 32 years to the day since the 0.01 release. And that's a round
number if you are a computer person.

Because other than the random date, I don't see anything that really
stands out here. We've got random fixes all over, and none of it looks
particularly strange. The genpd -> pmdomain rename shows up in the
diffstat, but there's no actual code changes involved (make sure to
use "git diff -M" to see them as zero-line renames).

And other than that, things look very normal. Sure, the architecture
fixes happen to be mostly parisc this week, which isn't exactly the
usual pattern, but it's also not exactly a huge amount of changes.

Most of the (small) changes here are in drivers, with some tracing
fixes and just random things. The shortlog below is short enough to
scroll through and get a taste of what's been going on.

Please go test,
