It's a short summary of the current state. You can also find a
video and slides from my ELC presentation online for a little more

Generally speaking, I'd recommend paying for the subscription to to anyone interested in the kernel, but it should become
visible to everyone with the next day (a week after the initial
publication). In the meantime, you can find the article at

Finally, I've made a list of the remaining work that Deepa
and I are planning to still continue (this should be mostly
complete but may be missing a few things):

- merge big series for 5.1, to allow time64 syscalls
- waitid/wait4/getrusage should get a replacement based on __kernel_timespec
- getitimer/setitimer should probably follow getrusage
- vdso, waiting for consolidation series from Vincenzo Frascino before
adding time64 entry points

file systems
- range checks on timestamps
- xfs
- hfs/hfsplus
- coda
- hostfs
- relatime_need_update

- media
- alsa
- sockets
- af_packet
- ppp ioctl
- rtc ioctl
- omap3isp

core kernel
- fix ELF core files (elfcore.h)
- syscall Audit code (kernel/audit.c, kernel/auditsc.c)
- make all time32 code conditional
- remove include/linux/timekeeping32.h
- remove compat_time* from time32.h
- remove timeval
- remove timespec
- remove time_t
