    SubjectLinux 3.16
    So nothing particularly exciting happened this week, and 3.16 is out there.

    And as usual (previous release being the exception) that means that
    the merge window for 3.17 is obviously open. And for the third time in
    a row, the timing sucks for me, as I have travel coming up the second
    week of the merge window. Many other core developers will be traveling
    too, since it's just before the kernel summit in Chicago.

    So we'll see how the next merge window goes, but I'm not going to
    worry about it overmuch. If I end up not having time to do all the
    merges, I might delay things into the week of the kernel summit, but
    I'll hope to get most of the big merging done this upcoming week
    before any travel takes place, so maybe it won't come to that. So this
    is just a heads-up that the merge window *might* be extended.

    Anyway, back to the changes since -rc7: it's really fairly small stuff
    randomly all over, with a third being architecture updates, a third
    drivers, and a third "misc" (mainly mm and networking). The
    architecture stuff is small ARM updates (mostly DT), some x86 Xen
    fixups, some random small powerpc things. The shortlog gives a good
    idea of what kind of stuff it all is, but it's really just 83 commits
    (plus merges and the release commit) and about a third of them are
    marked for stable.

    So while 3.16 looked a bit iffy for a while, things cleared up nicely,
    and there was no reason to do extra release candidates like I feared
    just a couple of weeks ago.
