The kernel summit is over, and most people have either returned or are
returning from San Diego.

Probably as a result of lots of maintainers having been away, it's
been pretty quiet - despite it being ten days (rather than the usual
week) since -rc3.

The statistics look a bit unusual, too, likely for the same reason.
It's 40% architecture work (powerpc, x86, mips, arm), and 20% btrfs
(late pull request of fixes, because I rejected an earlier bigger pull
request). Just 20% drivers, mainly some drm updates (the bulk being
radeon) and some block driver things (libata and drbd).

Shortlog appended, as you can see it's just fairly random. I'm hoping
we're entering the boring/stable part of the -rc windows, and that
things won't really pick up speed just because people are getting
