SubjectLinux 4.17
So this last week was pretty calm, even if the pattern of most of the
stuff coming in on a Friday made it feel less so as the weekend
approached.

And while I would have liked even less changes, I really didn't get
the feeling that another week would help the release in any way, so
here we are, with 4.17 released.

No, I didn't call it 5.0, even though all the git object count
numerology was in place for that. It will happen in the not _too_
distant future, and I'm told all the release scripts on kernel.org are
ready for it, but I didn't feel there was any real reason for it. I
suspect that around 4.20 - which is I run out of fingers and toes to
keep track of minor releases, and thus start getting mightily confused
- I'll switch over. That was what happened for 4.0, after all.

As for the actual changes since rc7 - the shortlog is appended - it's
mostly drivers, networking, perf tooling, and a set of nds32 fixes.
With some random other stuff thrown in. Again, the shortlog is
obviously only the last calm week, the overall changes since 4.16 are
much too big to list in that format.

The big 4.17 stuff was mentioned in the rc1 email when the merge
window closed, but I guess it's worth repeating how 4.17 is actually a
slightly smaller kernel than 4.16, thanks to the removal of a number
of effectively dead architectures (blackfin, cris, frv, m32r, metag,
mn10300, score, and tile). Obviously all the other changes are much
more important, but it's always nice to see spring cleaning like that.

And with this, the merge window for 4.18 is obviously open. I actually
have some travel the second week of the merge window, which is very
inconvenient for me, but I do hope that we'll get all the big stuff
merged the first week and it won't impact any release scheduling. But
we'll have to see.
