Linux Kernel 3.16 RC7
Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

I´m happy to say that things have calmed down a bit, and things look
to be on track.

Which didn´t actually seem to be the case at all earlier this week -
we had what appeared to be really nasty core bugs, and together with
rc6 being bigger than previous rc´s, I was really not feeling all that
good about this release there for a while.

But the worst "nasty bugs" ended up clearing up and not being kernel
bugs at all. One turned out to be a compiler issue (which is always
very scary and hard to debug and very annoying), and it even had a
fairly simple workaround so that we didn´t end up having to blacklist
compilers. Another turned out to be lockdep just being too aggressive,
and a false positive.

We obviously *do* have various real fixes in here, but none of them
look all that special or worrisome. And rc7 is finally noticeable
smaller than previous rc´s, so we clearly are calming down. So unlike
my early worries, this might well be the last rc, we´ll see how next
week looks/feels.

In numbers, rc7 is about one third arch (xtensa, powerpc, x86, s390,
blackfin), one third drivers (gpu, media, networking), and one third
"random" (networking, mm). But it´s all fairly small. Shortlog
