Linux 3.12-rc6

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sat Oct 19 2013 - 15:50:59 EST

I'm at PDX, about to fly out to the kernel summit, and it has almost
become a tradition to do an rc release using the airport wifi. So here
it is..

The patch is still busily being pushed out, but the git trees are
up-to-date, and the tar-file should already be out. Nothing major
happened last week., and the upcoming week is likely to be quiet too,
since a lot of core maintainers will be in Edinburgh for the KS.

Shortlog with more details appended, but the overview is just mainly
driver updates. USB, infiniband, acpi.. Some documentation and Cifs
updates, and the rest is random noise.
