Ok, we had an interesting week, and by now everybody knows why we were merging all those odd x86 page table isolation patches without following all of the normal release timing rules.
But rc7 itself is actually pretty calm. Yes, there were a few small follow-up patches to the PTI code still, and yes, there's been a fair amount of discussion about the exact details of the Spectre fixes, but at least in general things have been nice and calm. And we're actually back to "normal" in that most of the patches are drivers (mainly GPU, some crypto, some random small things - input layer, platform drivers etc). There are misc small filesystem and arch updates too. The appended shortlog is small enough that it's easy to just scroll down and get a feel for what happened. The one thing I want to do now that Meltdown and Spectre are public, is to give a *big* shout-out to the x86 people, and Thomas Gleixner in particular for really being on top of this. It's been one huge annoyance, and honestly, Thomas really went over and beyond in this whole mess. A lot of other people have obviously been involved too, don't get me wrong, but this is exactly the kind of issue that easily results in lots of nasty hacky patches because people are falling all over themselves trying to fix it and they can't even talk about why they are doing it in public, and Thomas &co ended up being a huge reason for why it was all much easier for me to merge: because of the literally _months_ of work on quality control and gating these patches and making sure the end result was a clean and manageable series. So a big *BIG* thanks to Thomas for making it so much easier for me to merge all this stuff. The whole nasty TLB isolation patches would have been just _so_ much more horrible without him. Anyway, due to this all, 4.15 will obviously be one of the releases with an rc8, even if things are starting to really calm down by now. We'll see, hopefully we won't need any more than that.
