Post Syndicated from corbet original https://lwn.net/Articles/845339/rss

The 5.11-rc7 kernel prepatch is out for
testing. “Anyway, this is hopefully the last rc for this release, unless some
surprise comes along and makes a travesty of our carefully laid plans.
It happens.

Nothing hugely scary stands out, with the biggest single part of the
patch being some new self-tests. In fact, about a quarter of the patch
is documentation and selftests.”
