Linux Kernel 3.13 RC5
Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

Ho ho ho,

Christmas is almost upon us, and -rc5 is the last rc before most of
us gorge ourselves into insensibility. Or cry into our lonely beers.
Or go out for Chinese food. Or whatever you happen to do.

Things seem to be slowly calming down, and I expect that the next week
is going to be calmer yet, for all the obvious reasons. This might
also be a good time to say that even _if_ things continue to calm
down, I think we´ll be going to at least -rc8 regardless, since LCA is
fairly early this year, and I won´t be opening the merge window for
3.14 until after I´m back from those travels.

Anyway, about rc5: about 40% drivers (gpu, networking, sound,
misc-you-name-it), 15% architecture updates (mainly powerpc this
time), 10% filesystems (ceph/cifs), 10% documentation, and the rest
"misc", including some core kernel (scheduler) and mm (numa) fixes.

Nothing really exciting stands out. The bugs I was involved with were
all sufficiently subtle and unusual that I didn´t feel like they
raised any red flags at this point, which is just how I want it. It´s
the "how did that ever even pass cursory testing" bugs that make me
upset, and if those existed, people were appropriately ashamed and
quiet about them ;)

So despite me planning on dragging out the rc´s a bit, there doesn´t
actually look to be any real technical reason for doing that, at least
so far. It all looks good, so please jump in and help test,
