Linux Kernel 3.17 RC7
Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

So I was really hoping that I could have left rc6 as the last rc and
just releasing 3.17 today, but that was not to be. It´s not that
anything particularly scary happened, but quite frankly, things just
didn´t calm down as I hoped for.

And while my travel schedule would have made it really nice had I been
able to just do a shorter-than-usual release, "convenience" isn´t
really part of the release criteria. Oh well.

This will likely mean that (barring unforseen circumstances) next
weekend sees the 3.17 release, and then due to travel, I probably will
just delay opening the merge window by a week after that.

And I´ll be very grumpy if people send me pull requests that I deem
inappropriate at this point. I don´t think that much of rc7 ended up
being "spurious", but I do get the feeling that there were people who
had delayed until the last minute that accounts for some of the "not
enough slowdown". If I get that feeling next week, I´ll be my usual
impolite self, and probably decide that you missed your chance.

Anyway. Back to rc7. There´s stuff all over here. The i2c part of the
patches stands out a bit because of some code movement, but apart from
that the diffstat looks pretty calm. About 60% drivers, with the rest
being a mix of documentation, arch, filesystem and networking. Nothing
really particularly stands out, but it is just bigger than I was happy
with doing a release without another rc.
