No unexpected nasty surprises this last week, so here we go with the
5.18 release right on schedule.
That obviously means that the merge window for 5.19 will open
tomorrow, and I already have a few pull requests pending. Thank you
everybody. I'd still like people to run boring old plain 5.18 just to
check, before we start with the excitement of all the new features for
the merge window.
The full shortlog for the last week is below, and nothing really odd
stands out. The diffstat looks a bit funny - unusually we have parsic
architecture patches being a big part of it due to some last-minute
cache flushing fixes, but that is probably more indicative of
everything else being pretty small.
So outside of the parisc fixes, there's random driver updates
(mellanox mlx5 stands out, again likely because everything else is
small), some other minor architecture fixes, some core networking, and
some tooling stuff. And random small noise. People who really care for
the details please just scroll down..
