Linux 3.16-rc2

From:  Linus Torvalds <>

Subject:  Linux 3.16-rc2

Message-ID:  <>
Archive-link:  Article

It's a day early, but tomorrow ends up being inconvenient for me due
to being on the road most of the day, so here you are. These days most
people send me their pull requests and patches during the week, so
it's not like I expect that a Sunday release would have made much of a
difference. And it's also not like I didn't have enough changes for
making a rc2 release.

Anyway, enough excuses. 3.16-rc2 is out, and contains the usual
assortment of fixes all over the map. The most unusual part at this
point is how the sparc changes stand out (at almost 40% of the patch
by bulk), but they are basically all just sparse warning cleanups.

Similarly, some Nouveau drm changes standing out size-wise, but again
those are largely due to small firmware fixes resulting in big
generated changes. The actual real changes are fairly small.

Ignoring those two unusually large changes (in lines), everything else
looks fairly normal. There are driver changes, some tooling updates
(particularly perf), and various other arch updates (arm, s390,
unicore32, x86..). And just misc random stuff all over the place -
rtmutex, btrfs, yadda yadda.

The shortlog is not tiny, but small enough to include here, so you can
see the details there if you care.

Please do go test it out,
