"Anyway, apart from that mind-fart, there's nothing particularly odd here. The diffstat is pretty flat - indicative of mostly small changes spread out."
"Which is what I like seeing, and we don't always see at this point. There's some file movement (8250-based serial and the arm mx5 -> imx merge), but otherwise really not a lot of excitement. Good." - said Linus Torvalds in the announcement.
