Linux 5.10 rc4

Monday Nov 16th 2020 by Linus Torvalds

Linus Torvalds: We're getting to the point in the rc series where I start hoping for things to calm down.

We're getting to the point in the rc series where I start hoping for
things to calm down.

5.10 hasn't calmed down yet, and there's a fair amount of small noise
all over the place. Nothing that makes me particularly worried, and
honestly, with about a third of the patch being various selftest
updates and fixes some of that noise is certainly welcome, but I'm
hoping next week will start seeing less actual changes.

Anyway, if you ignore the Documentation, tooling and selftest changes,
about half of this is various minor driver updates (really all over
the place), with the rest being a mix of architecture (arm64 and x86),
filesystem fixes, and minor core kernel and vm changes.

All looks good, and nothing makes me go "uhhuh, 5.10 looks iffy". So
go test, let's get this all solid and calmed down, and this will
hopefully be one of those regular boring releases even if it's
certainly not been on the smaller side...
