Linux 3.3 release

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sun Mar 18 2012 - 21:26:04 EST

So after the extra -rc release last weekend, now the final 3.3 is out
there in the usual locations.

Things did indeed calm down during the last week, and the shortlog
looks pretty boring. The diffstat from -rc7 is dominated by the
arch/tile defconfig changes, the rest is pretty small, although there
are changes spread out in various subsystem s(drivers, filesystem,
networking, perf tools).

The shortlog (from -rc7) is appended, and for a more high-level view
of at least parts of the changes since 3.2 it's probably worth going
to kernelnewbies:

which tends to be pretty good about these kinds of things.

And obviously, the 3.3 release means that the merge window for 3.4 is
now open, although I may keep of pulling stuff for a day or so to
encourage people to test the actual release.

I did want to mention that with spring break for my kids coming up
during this merge window, I will be gone a couple of days to the
Oregon coast, probably without any real internet access. We'll see.
It's mostly during next weekend, so it's probably not that noticeable,
but if it means that I fall behind I might spend a few extra days
doing merging. But even if that means that -rc1 might be slightly
delayed, I'll use the normal two-week cut-off for actual pull

And who knows - it's entirely possible that it won't be an issue at
all, and everything will be on schedule. But I thought I'd mention the
possibility so that it doesn't take anybody by surprise.
