Message-ID: <> (raw)

So here we are, two weeks later, and the merge window is closed.

The full diffstat isn't useful, because this is another of those
occasional releases where the AMD drm driver adds those generated
register definitions, so the diff is absolutely dominated by register
definitions for DCN 3.1.x and MP 13.0.x register definitions. Don't
even go look - you'll go blind.

Another fairly big chunk of it (but nowhere _near_ the AMD GPU
register definitions) is the updates for various Intel performance
monitoring event tables.

But if you ignore those two areas, things look fairly normal. At that
point, it's about 60%driver updates - with GPU updates are still
fairly sizable, but now no longer so dominant as to hide everything
else. And all the other usual suspects too: networking, sound, media,
scsi, pinctrl, clk, etc..

The rest is fairly spread out  documentation and devicetree bindings
(maybe I should just count that against drivers), architecture updates
(biggest part of the diff: nds32 is gone, but there's all the usual
x86, arm, arm64, powerpc, parisc, mips and riscv updates). Tooling
updates (perf and selftests), and of course all the core kernel
updates (filesystem, core, networking, VM).

As always, there's _way_ too many changes to list individually, and
you're just getting the usual mergelog appended.

In fact, at least in pure commits, this has been a bigger merge window
than we've had in some time. But let's hope it's all smooth sailing
this release.

Sure, that will happen.
