Linux Kernel 3.18 RC2
Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

Another week, another rc - and now the merge window is *definitely* closed.

I had hoped that the rc1 release would mean that a few stragglers
would quickly surface, and then the rest of the rc would be more
normal. But no, I had straggling merge-window pull requests come in
all week, and rc2 is bigger than I´d like.

Oh well. It´s not like I´m hugely surprised, but it does mean that I´m
probably going to be unpleasant next week to anybody who tries to get
me to pull things that I think looks like "development" rather than
"fixes". You´ve been warned. I effectively gave you a full three
weeks of merge window, now it´s time for bugfixes, and not random
other noise. Ok?

And to be honest, we´ve had bigger rc2´s in history. Not recently,
though. Both 3.3 and 3.4 had big -rc2 releases, and 3.15 (which was
the largest release ever, iirc) came reasonably close.

At least _part_ of the size is the very long-delayed overlayfs merge
that I already mentioned in the rc1 release message as being pending.
Let´s see how much fallout that all causes, but it´s been around for a
long time (partly because it needed various vfs-layer things to
integrate cleanly), and I think it´s in good shape. Knock wood.

So at least partially as a result of that overlayfs merge, about a
third of the patch is filesystems. It´s not _just_ overlayfs, though,
there was a late ext4 merge request that I think is actually bigger,
at least partly due to some extent handling refactoring.

The rest is the more usual driver updates (thermal, watchdog, scsi
target, ACPI & PM, misc other updates) and architecture updates (arc,
arm, powerpc, mips, x86). Some Documentation and include file updates
rounds out the rest.

Shortlog appended for details, I think it´s still well within the
mailing list size constraints.
