Linux 5.19-rc1

From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sun Jun 05 2022 - 20:42:59 EST

So the last two weeks were _fairly_ normal, although I will gripe and
moan a bit about how many late pull requests I got. The second week
started out very calm, but that was sadly only because a _lot_ of
people left their final pull request pretty late. Not very pleasant at

But what does make me pretty pleased is that pretty much all of the
pull requests were signed tags. I still don't technically _require_
signatures for pulls from, but I've been (not very subtly)
encouraging people to use them, and we're getting there. It's just
good hygiene.

And to cap off the good news, this is the first merge window when
Andrew participated all through git, and the first time in basically
Linux history when I didn't have a single patch-bomb to apply (I still
do individual random patches, and expect to always do them, but no
more "big series of raw patches").

So on the whole it's all very good.

Anyway, apart from those three "process" issues, things look perfectly
normal. Judging by the merge window, this release is going to be on
the bigger side, but certainly not breaking any records, and nothing
looks particularly odd or crazy. The diffstat is skewed by yet another
drop of generated AMD GPU register descriptor headers, but I guess
even that is "normal" by now. Certainly not a new thing. And if you
ignore that drivers/gpu/drm/amd/include/ subdirectory, the stats look
like they tend to do: roughly 60% drivers, with the rest being
architecture updates, tooling, documentation and some relatively minor
core kernel updates (filesystems, mm, networking etc. Oh, and the core
module handling got split up into more manageable pieces rather than
one big file).

One thing of note is how the long-time ARM generic kernel work (aka
"multiplatform") is pretty much done after 10+ years. Congrats to
everybody involved. The StrongARM platforms remain with their separate
kernels, and are expected to stay so, but compared to where things
were a decade ago, this is a pretty big step.

So hey, let's start calming things down and testing this all.
