I'm sitting on top of over 170 more patches that have been marked for
the stable releases right now that are not included in this set of
releases. The fact that there are this many patches for stable stuff
that are waiting to be merged through the main -rc1 merge window cycle
is worrying to me.
Why are subsystem maintainers holding on to fixes that are
_supposedly_ affecting all users? I mean, 21 powerpc core changes
that I don't see until a -rc1 merge? It's as if developers don't
expect people to use a .0 release and are relying on me to get the
fixes they have burried in their trees out to users. That's not that
nice. 6 "core" iscsi-target fixes? That's the sign of either a
broken subsystem maintainer, or a lack of understanding what the
normal -rc kernel releases are supposed to be for.
So, I've picked through the patches and dug out only those that I've
"guessed" at being more important than others for the 3.10.1 release.
I'll get to the rest of these after 3.11-rc1 is out, and eventually
they will make it into the stable releases, but I am going to be much
more strict as to what is being added (carriage return changes for
debug messages, really ACPI developers?)
This is the start of the stable review cycle for the 3.10.1 release.
There are 19 patches in this series, all will be posted as a response
to this one. If anyone has any issues with these being applied, please
let me know.
Responses should be made by Sat Jul 13 21:45:35 UTC 2013.
Anything received after that time might be too late.
