SubjectLinux 6.8-rc1
So this wasn't the most pleasant merge window, but most of the
unpleasantness was entirely unrelated to the code base and almost
entirely related to nasty weather. Just a few technical hiccups. And
after a very big 6.7 release, 6.8 looks to actually be smaller than
average, although not really all that significantly so.

And while maybe a bit smaller than usual (I blame the holidays),
things generally look pretty normal. The bulk is driver updates (GPU
and networking drivers are the big areas as always, but there's a bit
of everything), but we've also got a fair chunk of filesystem updates
(mainly core vfs, bcachefs, xfs and btrfs) and obviously all the usual
arch updates.

The rest is all over: docs, tooling, core kernel, mm and networking.
My mergelog below gives some kind of high-level overview.

Let the testing and calming down begin,

Linus
