Linus Torvalds announced yesterday, June 24th, that the fourth Release Candidate of the upcoming Linux 3.5 kernel is now available for download and testing.Linux kernel 3.5 RC4 is here to fix the kmsg_dump() functionality, XFS 'struct log' rename patch, as well as updates to drivers and small improvements.
"Lots of tiny fixes here. I think the biggest (in lines) change is the fixup of the kmsg_dump() functionality that got broken due to the new record-oriented kernel message stuff."
"And even that really isn't all that big. The other one that stands out in pure number of lines is the XFS 'struct log' rename patch (which also did a couple of trivial whitespace changes)," said Linus Torvalds in the email announcement.
