SubjectLinux 5.15-rc1
So 5.15 isn't shaping up to be a particularly large release, at least
in number of commits. At only just over 10k non-merge commits, this is
in fact the smallest rc1 we have had in the 5.x series. We're usually
hovering in the 12-14k commit range.

That said, counting commits isn't necessarily the best measure, and
that might be particularly true this time around. We have a few new
subsystems, with NTFSv3 and ksmbd standing out. And as a result, when
you look at the stats on a "lines changed" basis, 5.15-rc1 ends up
looking much more middle-of-the-road. It still doesn't look like a
particularly _big_ merge window, but also not remotely the smallest
one.

And while this is not up there with some larger releases, it's
actually been one of the messier merge windows. Part of it was
self-inflicted damage from me trying to enable -Werror much more
aggressively, but I also ended up having to push back a lot more on
some of the patch series and had a number o full requests where I went
"ok, I've pulled this, but XYZ is wrong".

So we've had merge windows that went much more smoothly. In fact, I
have a pull request or two that I just didn't feel like going through
fully, and I might still pull the upcoming week, but I got a bit fed
up with how I ended up seeing new pull requests - and not for fixes -
coming in fairly late in the merge window. Yes, the merge window is
two weeks, but part of that is very literally to give _me_ time to
actually look things through, not for people to send me new requests
up until the very end of the merge window.

Anyway, I'm hoping that things calm down, and I'll take a look at a
few things still in my inbox, but on the whole you should expect that
"that's it" and send me fixes only.

And in order to get those fixes going, please go out and test this.

Appended, as always, is my "mergelog" - since even at "only" 10k+
commits, the shortlog is not really realistically readable or useful
as a summary. And as always, the mergelog credits the person I pulled
from, which is not the same as the actual author of all the changes.
There's just over a hundred people listed below that I've pulled from,
but over 1500 people with authorship credit in the git tree. So that's
where you'd need to dig for all the details.

Thanks,
Linus
