Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

So you had an extra week to prepare your pull requests, and if you
were planning on sending it in the last two days thinking Iīd close
the merge window on Sunday as usual, I can only laugh derisively in
your general direction, and call you bad names. Because Iīm not
interested in your excuses. I did warn people about this in the 3.12
release notes. As it was, there were a few people who cut it fairly
close today. You know who you are.

If there are pull requests I missed (due to getting caught in spam
filters, or not matching my normal search patterns), and you think you
sent your pull request in time but it got overlooked, ping me -
because I donīt have anything pending I know about, but mistakes

Talking about mistakes... I suspect it was a mistake to have that
extra week before the merge window opened, and I probably should just
have done a 3.12-rc8 instead. Because the linux-next statistics look
suspicious, and we had extra stuff show up there not just in that

your interests you might find all the incremental updates to various
areas interesting. There are some odd ones in there (LE mode Powerpc

Go forth and test, and start sending me regression fixes. And really,
if you didnīt send me your pull request in time, donīt whine about it.
Because nobody likes a whiner.

Shortlog of merges appended. The real shortlog is much too big to be
readable, as always for rc1.
