[$] 5.12 Merge window, part 1

Post Syndicated from corbet original https://lwn.net/Articles/847057/rss

The beginning of the 5.12 merge window was delayed as the result of severe
weather in the US Pacific Northwest. Once Linus Torvalds got going, though, he
wasted little time; as of this writing, just over 8,600 non-merge
changesets have been pulled into the mainline repository for the 5.12
release \u2014 over a period of about two days. As one might imagine, that work
contains a long list of significant changes.
